Laptop Loan Scheme
The campus operates a laptop loan scheme for students in all of our locations. An application form is available from Course Directions early in the term for access to a laptop for the year and successful students can collect laptops from the office shortly after that. This scheme facilitates students in accessing the technology they need in order to be most successful in their chosen course.
TEL & IT Student Support
If you have any TEL/IT issues eg. logging onto your email, accessing Moodle etc. and need some support in this area, there are support times available during the week on a regular basis. Details will be given at the start of the academic year.
A number of tutorials in various subject areas (including English) are usually available on a regular basis. The areas covered varies from year to year. Details of these will be made available on start up. The current information can be found on the Student Intranet and Student App, where bookings can also be made for these support tutorials.

All students are issued with a student ID Card. ID cards must be returned to the Office upon leaving of a programme before final completion. The Campus reserves the right to withhold an ID card that is used inappropriately by a person not registered on a programme.
A Student ID card will be for the duration of your programme of study and will be reissued, if required, each year as you may progress through a programme. A replacement ID card can be applied for; a €15 fee is charged for the replacement of a lost ID (payable at reception).
