Details of course fees can be found with the course description in this prospectus or online. The fees indicated include examinations and internal assessments but do not include class materials unless otherwise indicated in the course details.

Students are advised to keep this in a safe place and bring it with them on the first night of classes. For security reasons, the preferred methods of payment are credit or debit card, cheque, postal order or bank draft.
Credit or Debit Card
Payment can be made using credit or debit card details over the telephone or by post. For security reasons, please do not email credit or debit card details.
Cash – Not Accepted
In line with Institute policy, the Lifelong Learning Office can no longer accept cash.
Where the course fees are being paid for by an employer, the student should complete an application form and attach a letter of approval from the employer on company headed paper. Instead of a letter the employer may email the Life Long Learning office (attn.: Bridie Coleman) confirming their intention to pay the course fee to LLLMayo@gmit.ie.
For a course to commence, a minimum number of student enrolments are required. If this number is not reached, the course is cancelled. When this occurs a full fee refund will be processed automatically and confirmation supplied by phone/email or web text.

Single accredited module/course
If a student starts a course and later decides to withdraw, a full refund will be given if a request in writing (or email) is received by the Lifelong Learning office within 10 days from the start of the course. A 75% refund is given if requested up to three weeks from the start of the course, after this time refunds are not available.
