Part-Time Registration and Orientation

We are delighted that you have chosen National College or Ireland (NCI) to pursue your education goals. On this page you will find everything you need in order to register as a student and prepare you for the commencement of your course.

Step 1 - Paying Your Fees

In order to be a registered student of the National College of Ireland you must pay your course fees.

This can be completed in a number of ways;

1.       Pay a 20% deposit and complete a direct form: If your course is listed on the direct debit schedule you can pay a 20% deposit of your course fees now and spread the remainder over a number of months. Make sure to check the direct debit schedule for details of how the remainder of your payments are spread over the calendar year.

You must return a completed and signed direct debit form in order to completely confirm your registration. The completed form can be emailed to fees@ncirl.ie

 

2.       Pay 50% of your course fee: If your course is more than 13 weeks in duration you can pay a 50% deposit before the course commences and a further 50% will be due before semester 2 commences in January 2018.

 

3.       Employer Sponsorship/Funding: If you are in receipt of funding for your course please complete the Sponsorship Form and return to fees@ncirl.ie. Please ensure you confirm the amount you will be funded for on this form. The sponsorship form must arrive at least 5 days in advance of your course commencing to ensure you are registered on the course.

 

Fees can be paid over the phone by calling 1850 221 721 and picking option 3. Payments can be made using a debit or credit card. The College does not accept cash on the premises or American Express.

If payment is made over the phone, a receipt will be sent out within 5 working days. 

 

Step 2 - Get Your Login Details

Once you have paid your fees and have registered with the College you can set your login details online.

PLEASE NOTE YOUR LOGIN DETAILS WILL NOT BE POSTED TO YOU, YOU MUST SET THEM ONLINE.

You can set your login details using the Password Management section of the website.

The Setting your Password guide will give you a step-by-step guide through this process.

 

Step 3 - Getting Your Student Card

When possible we endeavour to post your student card to you before your course commences. However, you must ensure you have completed the following to allow us to send your card;

·        Paid your course fees (see Step 1)

·        Provided an appropriate photo with your online application form. The photo provided must be;

o   Clear, Sharp and in focus.

o   Head straight to camera and show full front view as you would normally appear.

o   Your expression should be neutral.

o   Sunglasses and hats should not be worn and only head coverings worn for religious reasons are permitted.

o   Background should be a plain, light coloured background.

o   There should be no other person in the photograph.

·        If you did not provide a photo with your online application please send one to admissions@ncirl.ie . You picture must be saved and sent as a jpeg file. Alternatively, please email us a link to your LinkedIn profile and we will use your profile picture.

**Every effort will be made to post a student card to you once your payment has been received. However, if payment is made less than 2 weeks before the start date of your course we cannot post your card to you, you will be required to attend a registration session to receive your student card.

 

Step 4 - Your Timetable

You can view your course timetable at any stage online by using the dedicated timetable section of the website.

Simply search for your course then choose your week & day range.

For students who would prefer to pay their fees in person and collect their student card we provide specific registration times and dates for each course. These dates can be found below.
Please note the following
· Your IT login details will not be available on the date of your registration, please follow Step 2 above to set your login details.
· A photo will be taken at your registration session and this will be used for your student card.
