This year, the existing and very proplar postgraduate diploma / masters in adult and community education has been re-engineered in a flexible part-time format which allows us to offer this programme in Kilkenny.
Three postgraduate certificates will be offered which may be studied as stand-alone courses in their own right, or with a view to completing the postgraduate diploma.
On completition of all three certificates, participants will be awarded the postgraduate diploma and subject, to fulfilling the application criteria, may apply to continue to Part II of the MEd in Adult & Community Education if they wish.
