Part Time Courses
CIT operates one of the largest programmes of part-time study in Ireland. The Institute offers alternative routes to success through education, for example, for those who entered employment on completing their second-level education. CIT provides approximately 150 courses leading to Higher Certificate, Bachelor Degree, Honours Bachelor Degree, Postgraduate, Professional and Trades qualifications.
The ACCS scheme operates for many of these courses. Many courses leading to professional qualifications are also provided as well as short courses for industry. ACCS is an acronym for “Accumulation of Credits and Certification of Modules”. This scheme allows students (for specified courses) - instead of studying an entire course - to study one or more modules of that course. Modules passed, are certified individually, and can be accumulated, leading to an award of Higher Certificate, Degree or Honours Degree.
Details of all part time courses can be found in the CIT Continuing Education Handbook 2016 - 2017
