q What is the deadline for applying for a PLC course and how do I apply?

A In general, further education colleges do not have closing dates. Once the college opens for application, they are accepted until the course and waiting lists are filled. The most popular courses will fill quickly so it is essential to apply early.

Applications should be made directly to the college (normally online) and colleges normally allow applicants to apply for two courses. Applicants will be invited to interview and if offered a place they are likely to be asked for a small deposit to hold it.

Some PLC colleges are already open for application, including Colaiste Dhulaigh in north Dublin. Ballyfermot College of Further Education will open on December 12 and all colleges will be open for application by the end of January. Interested applicants should check their local colleges for important dates.
