Funded* Postgraduate Skills Provision 2020

Courses commencing in January 2021

 

DBS is delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding for a range of full-time and part-time postgraduate taught programmes under the Postgraduate Skills Provision measure which formed part of the Government’s July stimulus package.

The Postgraduate Skills Provision funded programmes have been selected to address specific economic and social needs arising from COVID19. Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris TD announced over €30 million in free and subsidised higher education places under the Jobs Stimulus package to help get people back to work, upskill workers and build economic confidence while continuing to manage the impact of COVID-19. The funding has been approved to support the provision of 11,597 places on short, modular courses together with an additional 2,555 postgraduate places.
 
Minister Harris said:
"The higher education sector has responded swiftly and effectively to the challenges that have arisen over recent months.The courses we are launching today will form a further response to the impacts of the global pandemic, providing upskilling and reskilling places for those who have been most affected and ensuring that they have the skills most needed by employers today. Many courses focus on future proofing the skills of those in employment, particularly in roles that may be impacted by digitalisation."

The programmes available at DBS through this initiative include the following full-time courses:


These programmes will run on a full-time basis during the day. It also includes two part time programmes:
