'Certificate in Preparatory Study for Third Level' is a short course unique to IT Tallaght June 2018
In collaboration with South Dublin County Partnership, IT Tallaght devised a nine week course (April - June 2018) that afforded prospective students the opportunity to prepare for their third level studies.

The 10 credit special purpose award enabled those considering studying on a full-time or part-time basis in the future to experience first hand what it's like to attend a third level institute.

The course helped students to develop their IT, study, and research skills as well as get a 'taster' of certain subjects including (but not limited to) maths, academic English, communications, science, social care and mechanical engineering. While some subjects were mandatory, others were optional.

The students were expected to complete a number of assignments (individual and/or group) however, there were no formal examinations.

On successful completion of the course, the students were awarded their certificates by IT Tallaght President, Thomas Stone, during a ceremony in St. Maelruain's Church.
