Part-time Courses - FAQs
FET is short for Further Education & Training. Kerry College is an integrated college of FET. This means we do both progression-focused further education programmes and a range of employment-focused skills training programmes.
We enroll twice each year - January and September.
Part-time programmes run on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings, Friday afternoons, Saturday mornings, and increasingly online.
This depends on the course you choose.
Some courses have long waiting lists, others - not so much. Places are filled on a first-come, first-served basis so the best advice we can offer is to apply in plenty of time.
We enroll over 1000 applicants to our part-time courses each year - so it's always busy.
As places are offered based on the date of application, our team could be working their way down through the list.
That said, always check.
You can call Caroline on our Part-time courses team at Monavalley on 066-7149600 or Stephen on our Part-time courses team in Listowel on 067-21023.
Although all of our part-time courses are fee-paying, we do have a DEASP Fee Waiver in place for those in receipt of a qualifying social welfare payment.
This is subject to a waiting list and demand for course places.
Most part-time courses run at Kerry College are Minor awards.
A Minor award is commonly referred to as a module - but also as a component certificate or a certificate of unit credit.
These single 'modules' may be completed and certificated individually. All minor awards are linked to a major award that allows learners to collect and build their minor awards and work towards gaining a major award.
Applications for all part-time programmes should be made online - via the Kerry College website or www.fetchcourses.ie
