Liberties College, a constituent College of the City of Dublin Education and Training Board, offers access to quality programmes to students of all communities, abilities and backgrounds. The education and training programmes of the College develop key skills and enrich capacity for critical thinking, creativity and expression.
We seek to create a learning culture that promotes personal responsibility and self-determination as cornerstones of Further Education. As a College of Further Education we will work in a spirit of respect and tolerance to create a positive, inclusive atmosphere and provide learners with the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
Progression to Higher Education
There is the possibility of progression to Universities and IoTs based on performance in QQI Level 5 assessments. In many cases holders of the QQI Advanced Certificate (Level 6) may apply for advanced entry.
Mature students are particularly welcome in Liberties College. Universities and Institutes of Technology recruit at least 15% of their allocation from mature applicants. Mature students (over 23 years) may apply directly for such places through the routes defined by each institution.
The VTOS & BEA Student
In Liberties College around 30% of all students are receiving Back to Education Allowance. These students are in any of our courses who have been unemployed or in receipt of payment through the Department of Social Protection and have made a decision to return to full-time education. VTOS and BEA students continue to receive all their benefits and allowances.
