Your Access into 3rd Level College


This site will provide you with the steps to get a place in either a PLC course or a third level college like IADT, UCD or Trinity College. This is also a map of my journey into 3rd level, so I know this works! So put the kettle on and find a pen and paper and let's create your new future together.

The purpose for this site

The main purpose of this site is to say to you that if you are reading this while being over the mature age of 25, then it is never too late to go back to School/PLC/College. If you are under 25, then it is also never too late to go back. Just remember when you were young and what you wanted to be.

This site will help you to get your own place in college with steps and links to all the important people and departments that you will have to contact in your new future.

My journey

I was 37 when I decided I wanted to go to college, but I was not sure what I wanted to do or where to go, or how to go around about it. After watching a RTE program on learning disabilities, I contacted Dyslexia Ireland for help, they pointed me towards an educational psychologist who diagnoised me as dyslexic. I contacted the social welfare and told them of my new situation. I found a PLC course and the Social helped me with the back to education allowence to help me study, and now I am in 2nd Year.
