Single Modules are ideal for for learners who wish to update professional knowledge, enhance their career, or sample the MA/PG Dip programme. Single Module students can subsequently register for the full MA or PG Dip and will be credited with any modules already successfully completed. Learners taking single modules only do not pay registration, and the single module fee applies.

Learners who pay the PG/MA registration fee of €800 at the start of their studies will be charged a discount fee of €550 per module, instead of the regular single module fee of €650. In the case of Political Economy 1, the fee is €600 instead of €700.

You can opt to register for the PG/MA at a later date if you wish, and will be given credit for any single modules already completed and passed. Once you register for the PG/MA fees you will henceforth be charged the discount rate for each subsequent module.


On graduation learners received an official Diploma Supplement (Transcript of Results) from the College. The cost of of issuing any additional transcripts is €25 euro (4 copies provided).
