This winter, Griffith College is offering several courses that will be funded by the Government of Ireland and the Higher Education Authority (HEA). With a special December intake this year, the funding will provide inexpensive, or even fully covered costs for courses. This start in December has been added due to the July Stimulus package, announced earlier this year by Minister of Higher Education, Simon Harris. The July Stimulus funding is aimed at providing opportunities for individuals to refresh their skills throughout their professional life. Unemployed applicants will receive full funding, and employed applicants will receive 90% funding. The funded courses will take place online, with a mix of evening classes and weekend workshops. These funded courses include Postgraduate diplomas and certificates, and are a great place to look when you are looking for the next step in your career progression.
