Inchicore College abolishes Fees for PLC courses

no fees graphic plain2

Yes, you read that right – no more PLC college fees!

Inchicore College is delighted to announce that we have abolished the course fees that used to be between €250 and €400. This applies to all courses commencing September 2023, and students will now only be required to pay a €50 registration charge when they accept a place on a course.*

This will be of huge benefit to you as a student of Inchicore College and is a reflection of the real value of Further Education courses in creating your future.

You can now attain nationally recognised qualifications that will kickstart your career for a nominal cost, and for nothing like the high fees charged by private operators.

Search our courses today and discover you what can do.

*For applicants who have already paid fees for 2023-2024 in excess of €50, the college will refund these charges. We will contact you over the summer to process a refund.

1st year Play – ‘Bethal’

Inchicore College is delighted to present ‘Bethal’, by Fionntán Larney.

“A dark, small room. Hannah lies on a table, covered in sweat. Elijah is kneeling in front of her praying quietly. Philip is checking her pulse, her eyes, and other signs of life. The room is quiet. Elizabeth enters with water and a towel, which she rings out and places on Hannah’s face.”

This enthralling and moving play centres on group of young people living in a commune of sorts, and what happens when their notions of faith and humanity are challenged.
