The structure of a bachelor’s degree programme doesn’t suit everyone. That’s why the flexible, vocational learning – including training in practical skills and work experience – offered on FET Level 5 & 6 courses (also known as Post Leaving Certificate or PLC courses) can be a preferred option for many.

Situated in the heart of Dublin city, Liberties College has become synonymous with excellent further education and training over the past five decades. Just a stone’s throw from bustling Grafton Street, the college attracts students from all over the country, catering for school leavers, people returning to education and mature students wishing to upskill or re-skill.
Hosting over 600 students across their campus with a range of backgrounds, ages, cultures, experiences and nationalities, the bubbling atmosphere of Liberties College is truly one of a kind. QQI Level 5 and 6 courses act as the perfect stepping stone, featuring options on childcare, tourism, creative arts, healthcare, social studies, youth work and more. Liberties College also has great pre-apprenticeship opportunities in IT Networks and Software development where you can progress to “pay as you learn” apprenticeships.

Students of Liberties College are enabled to take up jobs in their chosen area to gain entry to third level institutions to complete Level 7 and Level 8 Degrees and progress to Masters Degrees.
