They say learning never ends and in times of constant change, learning is lifelong. Here are five options to dip your toe into the world of third level education
1. A part-time course
If you want to try out the world of lectures, a part-time course may be a good start. Our part-time courses range from shorter courses over a few months to ones that run over a few years. See if there’s something that appeals to you, and talk to our staff if you have any questions. Part-time no longer means evening only, there are flexible options that range from daytime, evening, and online. www.wit.ie/parttime
2. Springboard +
Springboard + is growing year by year and the eligibility criteria have really expanded. This is a low-cost way of getting a qualification in an area where there is a demand for skilled people. www.wit.ie/springboard
3. Postgrad and Masters
Postgraduate courses come in all shapes and sizes these days – there are plenty of part-time options that have flexible learning options so you can work and study while getting a Level 9. www.wit.ie/pg
4. Full-time undergraduate
You can apply to a full-time undergraduate course between early November and 1 February via the CAO. WIT is one of the colleges that takes late applications between the start of March and 1 May (except for restricted courses). Sign up for our annual taster day for mature students to see if this is for you. www.wit.ie/mature.
5. Further education progression route
Waterford Institute of Technology offers preferential entry to students who successfully complete a linked FET programme in partner Colleges of Further Education and who meet certain criteria. See www.wit.ie/progression.
