We just wanted to keep you informed about three new exciting courses that Liberties College has been approved to offer in 2020-21
The Trinity Access Programme (TAP) offers an alternative route to Higher Education for students whose social, economic and educational experiences have so far prevented them from realising their full educational potential.
Liberties College has been running an Access Programme (TAP) for over ten years in partnership with Trinity College. The course mirrors the TAP Foundation Course for Young Adults (18-22) in TCD and allows participants the same opportunities to apply directly for places in the university. Successful students achieve a QQI Level 5 Award (5M3114) and may also apply for places on other Higher Education course through the CAO. Students study in Liberties College but participate in activities in Trinity College.
To support your work with TAP applicants, we are enclosing a copy of the TAP application form 2019-20 and the application Guidebook 2019-20.
For more information see the TCD website:

Liberties College Interviews Tuesday May 23rd - 9.00 to 4.00
Dear Guidance Counsellor, I just want to draw your attention to our interview day next Tuesday 23rd May. There are still places available on most of our courses and students may wish to ensure that they have a plan B if their CAO choices don't work out. We have Liberal Arts, Access to university which allows for progression to Arts and Social Sciences degrees in third level. I would also encourage you to bring to the attention of your students, the Trinity Access Programme which is run in collaboration with Trinity College, Dublin. This is particularly relevant for students who are HEAR eligible. Further many students who are unsure of which career direction they wish to follow, choose a PLC course as a way of 'dipping their toe' in the vocational sector before embarking on a 3 or 4 year degree programme.
This September we will be running a new course, Retail Pharmacy Assistant which is proving very popular. Details of the above and all our courses and application can be made on our website, www.libertiescollege.ie.
