Learning in the Hubs

What's different about Learning in the Hubs?

This ground-breaking initiative aims to bring third-level education programmes to communities across Ireland through the Connected Hubs network, enabling adult learners to study locally within a supportive group environment.

One of the unique features of these programmes is the inclusion of industry expert lecturers who bring extensive experience and real-life examples into the classroom. This approach bridges the gap between theoretical learning and practical application, enabling participants to apply their newfound knowledge in the workplace and real-life scenarios.

Who are the courses right for?

Targeted at adult learners over 23 years old, students can carry out course work and attend classes in a group setting at a Connected Hubs facility. This reduces the commitment to travel that third-level courses often require and enables students to study close to their home.

The courses are ideal for those in work, looking to re-enter the workplace, entrepreneurs and small business owners.

The Learning in the Hubs initiative addresses two major obstacles commonly faced by adult learners: financial constraints and the challenge of balancing study with family or work obligations. By offering flexible learning options, it ensures that students can access the programmes in a way that suits their busy lifestyles.

What can I study?
