They are free of charge to applicants who fall under the Springboard+ 'unemployed' & 'returners' categories and there is a 10% contribution fee for applicants who are in the 'employed' category. The HEA will fund 90% of the fees for successful employed applicants.

DBS offered two year, part-time accredited Level 8 Higher Diploma ICT skills conversion awards in the areas of FinTech, Data Analytics, Software Development, and Web & Cloud Technologies. These two year ICT skills conversion courses are delivered part-time and designed for people who are employed.
There are also one year part-time programmes in the areas of Big Data, Digital Marketing, and Fund Accounting. They are also delivered part-time for people who are employed and also allow applicants who are on social welfare payments, return to employment and continue with the part-time programmes after securing employment.
