Most of our part-time courses are located in our Coolock Campus. See our location page for details.
CDCFE offers an exciting range of part-time courses during the day and evening. These courses are designed to improve the student’s competence and skills and to prepare one for further and higher education and training in a part-time setting. Our part-time courses are also for those who wish to return to education for the enjoyment of learning itself and/or for the social interaction. Anyone from the age of 16+ is welcome to enroll! Younger students avail of courses to participate in the Gaisce awards and/or to have that extra qualification for entry to better opportunities for work or further study in college.
A distinctive feature, which the college is proud of, is its ability to respond to the educational needs of the local working population, community groups, and the individual. CDCFE's Part-Time Department welcomes any request or query for new programs from an individual or group of people.
Interviews are held for our top-up degree courses and applications are processed from March each year. Interviews are held for a limited number of part-time courses - view the relevant course in the part-time prospectus for further details. Where this applies please send your name and address with telephone contact details to the ‘Further Education Part-Time Community Education Office' stating your date of birth and PPS number and why you wish to join your chosen course. This application should reach the college preferably between mid-August and mid-September each year. Currently, we do not run interviews for our Spring part-time courses.
Course fees must be paid in full at enrolment. Cheques, postal orders & drafts should be made payable to the ‘City of Dublin E.T.B.’ Please do not send cash with postal applications. Non-cash transactions are preferred. Fees are only refunded where a class fails to form. Duration of a term may be adjusted to suit lower demand. Partial fee waivers are available for some social welfare recipients - enquire at registration.
