How the Springboard programme is delivered - FAQs

How many courses can I do together? Can I choose more than one course?

You can enrol on multiple modules under the July Stimulus as long as they don’t exceed 30 ECTS (3 modules in total).If you choose one of the Certificate Programmes, then this would be the only course you can take, as it is comprised of two or more modules. If you choose a modular course, you can select up to three modules, to amount up to a maximum of 30ECTS.

For example, if you chose ‘Computer Applications’ (5 ECTS), you could add on a second module such as ‘Quantitative Methods’ (5 ECTS) as these courses are complementary to each other and don't exceed the 30 ECTS maximum. 

Can you take a Springboard course if you don't live in Galway? I don’t live in Galway. Can I study only online?

Yes, all classes will be delivered online. All Springboard programmes are delivered on a part time basis to facilitate a flexible learning approach.

How can I apply for these funded programmes?

When is the deadline to pay my fees, if applicable?
