As part of a plan to tackle the rising cost of living and make learning more accessible for all, Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board (CMETB) has announced a significant reduction to fees on full time courses for the new academic year.
All Cavan Institute course fees have been reduced to a maximum of €200 per learner per year. Further reductions apply to applicants who are in receipt of a benefit (e.g. Medical Card/Social Welfare Payment) where the fee will be just €150. This announcement marks a great opportunity for students to embark on courses at a significantly reduced cost where all course materials, exam fees, toolkits and uniforms are now included in the yearly fee. CMETB will be processing refunds to learners who have already applied and paid in excess of €200 for the incoming academic year, ensuring the cost savings are passed on to every learner.
Students can expect to save up to €1300 on certain courses. For example; a learner enrolling on the Level 5 Hairdressing course will now pay €200 where previously course fees were approx. €1,000. Nursing Studies which previously cost €420 will now cost €200. For the Pre-University Education and Teaching course which would normally cost €330, students will save €130.
