Is there any assistance available?

The LDC is happy to currently offers two assistance schemes for students:

1.    Professional Development Subsidy - which is available to those who are working in the adult literacy service. Students will need to submit a form                               signed by their manager (AEO/ALO) confirming same. Form is available from our website 

2.    Bursary for those in receipt of Dept of Social Protection (DSP) payments – available for people in receipt of certain payments to the value of 25% of                           programme costs (approx.). Students will need to provide evidence of receipt of DSP payment & this may be checked with DSP directly. See LDC Fees                     Information Booklet for full information.

How to pay?

Student payments- for self-financing students payments can be made by credit/debit card or cheque/bank draft/postal order made payable to WIT. We unfortunately cannot accept cash payments. Please contact the Project Administrator directly at [email protected] / +353 (0)51 302689 to make payment.

Sponsor payments- the LDC is happy to accept payment from a sponsor organisation where the sponsor is paying fees on a student’s behalf.   In this instance the payment will go against the sponsor organisation & the receipt will be sent to them.

Flexible payment options –  50/50 Instalment Payment Plan – this is available if students have difficulty in paying full fees on application. 50% can be paid on application with the final 50% to be paid before starting the next semester.
