Deadline approaching for two exciting new courses

The deadline is fast approaching for anyone interested in enrolling in two new exciting courses to be rolled out in Letterkenny and Killybegs.

University College Cork (UCC) will roll out two courses from next month, a two-year Diploma in Autism Studies and a Certificate in Mental Health and The Community, lasting one year.

The courses will be delivered one evening a week.


The two-year Diploma in Autism is designed to introduce you to the different ways in which people on the autistic spectrum experience the world. Participants  will learn about the history of autism, the different strengths and challenges of autism, and how autism affects a person’s mental health and their daily living.

The  Certificate in Mental Health and The Community has been designed in conjunction with Mental Health Ireland.

The deadline for applications is Friday, September 23 and it is hoped the courses will commence in mid-October.
