Most good programmers do [it] not because they expect to get paid or get adulation by the public, but because it is fun to program - Linus Torvalds
Level 6, 7 & 8 Programmes
We offer courses at all levels delivered on a part-time basis, some delivered on-campus and others delivered online. The length of time it takes you to complete a course depends on how many modules you take per semester.
Part-time courses are semesterised running September to January and January to May. Classes run Monday to Friday evenings and may run Saturday mornings. The number of nights depends on the number of modules you take. The duration of the course also depends on the number of modules you choose to take. Timetables are not finalised until September.
Modules contain lectures and labs. You will be assessed throughout your modules and may also have a final exam, which takes place at the end of a semester.
CIT has a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) service where learning from all aspects of life may be presented for assessment instead of completing a module http://www.cit.ie/rpl
