The College welcomes applications from internation students provided that such students satisfy all the requirements of the immigration authorities and are deemed eligible by the Department of Education and Skills to participate in our courses.
We have many international students attending programmes in the college at the present time and their presence contributes greatly to the life of the college in terms of richness and diversity.
Our extensive Adult Education Programme has always attracted large numbers of adult students for night courses. In recent years there is an increasing number of mature students accessing our day courses also, particularly through the Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme (VTOS) and through the Back to Education Initiative (BTEI). Further details of the courses available under this scheme are provided on the VTOS page. Mature students are most welcome to apply for any course appropriate to their needs. If you need further assistance in helping to identify the course most suited to your needs, the Guidance Counsellor or VTOS Co-ordinator will be pleased to assist – just telephone for an appointment.
Repeating may seem like the end of the world but the dedicated and hard-working teachers and staff at Plunket College make repeating less stressful. I'd recommend it to anyone.
"I never thought that I would go to university because of Leaving Cert points, never mind have the opportunity to study in an area (Psychology) where it is so difficult to get a place. I owe how well I did in university in no small part to the year I spent on the Counselling & Psychology course in Plunket College; it was indispensable in getting me where I am now, a second year Psychology student in NUI Maynooth.
