With ongoing social distancing regulations likely to continue in place into the academic year 2020/21 WIT is reviewing delivery modes of part-time courses for the coming year. This may mean a change from the typical course delivery schedule. We are planning to publish the listing of part-time courses that will be offered for 2020/21 with further details on schedules and modes of delivery in early July

The Certificate in Study Skills for Higher Education aims to provide adult learners with the skills, knowledge and confidence necessary to succeed and flourish in their undergraduate study at WIT.  The programme is aimed at adults who have been away from formal education for a long time or who did not complete a Leaving Certificate.  It is also aimed at applicants whose skills no longer allow them to access the labour market and for adult leaners from overseas who wish to gain entry to the undergraduate programmes at WIT.  The programme supports and facilitates adult learners to identify and choose the undergraduate programme that best suits their own abilities, competencies and interests.
