Q: Can I be admitted to class without my card?
A: NO CARD, NO CLASS. It is every student’s personal responsibility to ensure they have their card with them each time they attend classes at the Institute. We have the right to refuse admission to any student who does not comply with this regulation. A day pass costs €10. A replacement card costs €20.

Q: Is there a place I can get lunch?
A: Yes, we have an onsite canteen serving a variety of sandwiches and drinks. Also, locally, there are sandwich bars and shops.

Q: Are the classes conducted ‘lecture style’ or are students free to ask questions?
A: Our teachers are very approachable and students are free to ask questions.

Q: My son/daughter is unwell and cannot attend.  Can I have a refund?
A: No, there are no refunds.  However, if you return the student’s admission card to us immediately, along with a short letter of explanation, at the discretion of management, a credit note can be put on the student’s file for future use or for use by a sibling.

Q: My son/daughter cannot attended the course.  Can we buy the notes?
A: No. Teaching is a central part of all our courses. The notes are to facilitate recall and revision of the day’s work covered by the teacher.

Q: Am I entitled to the notes from classes that I was absent from?
A: Yes, however you must deal directly with your teacher in relation to this. Administration staff do not have access to class notes.
