There are no tuition fees for students who are citizens of Ireland or another European Union State. For all students there is a moderate course charge to cover expenses such as examination fees and specialist materials supplied directly to students.
From 2011, as required by government legislation, a charge of €200 (in addition to the course charge) will be payable by all PLC students. There will be some exemptions and reliefs.
Contact the Admissions Office for an up-to-date listing of course charges. Candidates who are non-EU citizens should contact the College for details of entry conditions.
