Such academic credits may contribute to completion of a formal academic award by the University.  All participants will attend all lectures (and seminars/tutorials where these are scheduled) and will have access to all learning materials for the module, including library and online resources.  Full participants will have unrestricted access to the on-campus study supports.The cost of this is €500.00

Audit Only Modules

You may register to complete the Module  on an audit basis which means you can sit in on the lectures and participate in the class. Participants taking the modules on an audit basis will be invited to complete a reflection on the learning gained on their completion of the modules and gain a Certificate of Participation. There are no assignments, essays or assessments associated with these modules if you take them on this basis.  The cost of this is €100.00
