- Some courses may be subject to additional VAT charges.
- The majority of classes run over a ten-week term. Dates, times, notes, and prices are all on each individual class page on the website. Those courses that have different times/dates/pricing/notes/ guidelines, indicate this clearly in the booking section for that course.
- For all courses that are 1.5 hours or 2.0 hours long, there will be a short break during the class to allow everyone to stretch their legs, get a drink, etc. Night classes are in most people’s downtime and it is really important to feel relaxed before, during, and after your class. Therefore, we advise everyone to arrive on time. Also, be conscious that there may be a class directly prior to, or following on from yours and be respectful of the transition times between classes.
- Please remember that Inchicore College is located within a residential community and we would ask everyone to be respectful of noise levels when entering and leaving the college premises and its environs.
- Safety protocols for the room that you are working in will be explained by the tutor during the first week of classes.
