Many people cannot make regular trips to learn on campus, for example, due to underlying health conditions, disabilities, anxiety or caring for family members. That is why we have developed a range of programmes, available through the CAO, which can be studied anywhere in Ireland with no need to attend campus.

We offer three full-time online undergraduate programmes through the CAO. All lectures are delivered live online and students can fully participate in group work and project work by means of innovative online supports. Funding is also available on these programmes. Our work based learning degree consists of three days in the work place and two days studying online every week. This is a paid traineeship and we will help source a suitable company for you.
