INCREASED DEMAND FOR PLACES AT KERRY COLLEGE

42

KERRY COLLEGE OF FURTHER EDUCATION AND TRAINING (Kerry College) has welcomed students back on-campus this week – at their four locations in Tralee and Listowel. Demand has increased in many areas this year with many courses now full.

Popular course areas this year include: Social Studies, Childcare, Education, Business, Engineering, Law, Media and Journalism, Sport, Healthcare & Nursing.Due to COVID-19, the college of further education and training is focusing on smaller, socially distanced class sizes with a commitment to controlled in-class and on-campus interactions.

All courses for third level progression have started this week. Many courses are full but the late application process remains open.

Recruitment for employment-focused courses is ongoing. Some programmes already up and running and many more to start in the coming months.

Kerry College offers over 100 full time courses across its campus locations in Tralee at Monavalley, Clash Road and Denny Street and at Listowel. There are no tuition fees for full-time Kerry College courses and applicants may apply for a range of funding: SUSI grant, Learner Payment (Training Allowance) or Back to Education Allowance.

Kerry College Admissions Officer John Herlihy is saying there is still time to apply:
“We know that many school leavers are still waiting on CAO offers and making their minds up on what to do this academic year. We are taking late applications for now but this process will close shortly. Many of our courses are fully booked but we will always try help applicants where we can.”
