He won’t be able to do one. You need to either be working or in receipt of some type of social welfare payment.

Makes sense, all i have to do is ask him to move out, start claiming 200/week sw and get them to pay another 100/week towards a room, cost the state 15k/year when he can live at home for free

Tough time to be a recent graduate unfortunately.

some of the courses dont require any additional documentation. ie dont need to provide evidence of past courses completed. Dont need to set out why you are applying. So how do they decide. Will the course provider contact us directly and ask for this information.

anyone know if the courses have filled up. i only applied an hour ago. was it in vain?

It depends. I applied to Sligo, they didn't require additional documentation with the initial application, but they asked for transcripts after reviewing my initial application and then proof of employment when I accepted the course.

Hi Guys,

I have been offered a place by IT Sligo for a level 8 Certificate in Medical Technologies Regulatory Affairs & Quality. I am waiting to hear back from Innopharma about their Higher Diploma in BioPharmaceutical and Medical Device Manufacturing. Has anyone any experience on either of these two courses? Finding it hard to decide on which one to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Received an offer today from DBS for a Higher Diploma in Science in Computing - delighted. Need to work out the evenings with work before accepting, though

You could accept the course and defer it for a year as far as I am aware
