Dept of Further & Higher Education announced over €30 million in FREE and subsidised higher education places.

Dublin Business School is delighted to announce that they have been awarded funding for a range of part-time modules under the Modular Skills Provision measure which formed part of the Government’s July stimulus package in 2020.

The Modular Skills Provision funded programmes have been selected to address specific economic and social needs arising from COVID-19. Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris TD announced over €30 million in free and subsidised higher education places under the Jobs Stimulus package to help get people back to work, upskill workers and build economic confidence while continuing to manage the impact of COVID-19.

The Modular Skills Provision funded programmes are due to commence in September 2021. Applications are currently being accepted.  Due to the limited number of places available, early application is recommended. Our Modular Skills Provision programmes are fully accredited by Quality & Qualifications Ireland (QQI) and span Level 6, 7and 8 on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ), to suit applicants with a range of prior qualifications and experience. The majority of modules will each carry 10 credits. They will be delivered in a part-time mode online, and allow learners to progress onto a full qualification on the NFQ if they so wish at a later stage.

The Funded Modular Skills Provision programmes listed below are open to all applicants; Employed, Unemployed, Returners and those Signing for Contribution Credits subject to meeting the eligibility and academic entry requirements as listed on for the preferred course.
