Dundalk Institute of Technology (DKIT) has announced over 109 places in postgraduate and modular courses funded under the Government of Ireland July Stimulus package.

DKIT is the focal point for higher education and research on the Belfast-Dublin corridor, serving the North Leinster, South Ulster region of Ireland.

Under this scheme, eligible candidates can be fully funded or 90% subsidised to undertake postgraduate study in Masters, Postgraduate Certificates and single modules beginning in January 2021. The suite of single modules offers a new opportunity for participants to learn while they work as all programmes will be offered via blended delivery modules enabling maximum flexibility for learners.

56 places will be funded in Masters and Graduate Certificate programmes while 53 places will be funded in single modules at postgraduate level. The courses are offered in high demand areas such as Computing, Renewable Energy and Hotel Revenue Marketing and Digital Media Management. The new programmes aimed at helping people to upskill and retrain where necessary and specifically tagets those in receipt of the Pandemic Unemployment Payment, recent graduates and people in employment. People in employment can be 90% funded under this scheme, while people who are unemployed can be fully funded.

DkIT is now recruiting for programmes which are scheduled to commence in late January 2021.

President of DkIT, Michael Mulvey, PhD, said

“We are delighted to welcome additional July Stimulus funding by the Government to support people to upskill or retrain in critical areas where there are known skills gaps or shortages in our region, such as computing, renewable energy and innovation in hotel revenue management. 2020 has been a challenging year businesses and workers and as uncertainty continues to persist, people should take this opportunity to invest in themselves through additional training and professional development to adapt to new challenges and compete in today’s evolving workplace. These funded courses provide an opportunity to do this at a time where personal finances for l may be tight and I would encourage people to apply while places still remain.”

The Institute is also offering a variety of Springboard+ and HCI funded programmes for entry in 2021.


Dundalk Institute of Technology delivers postgraduate courses and MBA degrees that will benefit students’ career prospects.
