New courses in law and business available at Griffith College Cork

Griffith College Cork has some new courses on offer.

One of these courses is from the Law Faculty for autumn 2021 which includes a Certificate in Legal Studies and Practice and the other is a Certificate in Legal Practice, both QQI-accredited Level 7 programmes on the National Framework of Qualifications.

Both new courses prepare graduates for a career as a legal secretary or as a stepping-stone towards the LLB (Hons) in law degree.

Meanwhile in the Graduate Business School - in addition to the MSc in International Pharmaceutical Business Management degree which focuses on graduates securing quality or management roles in the pharmaceutical industry - the faculty has launched a new QQI-accredited Level 9 postgraduate special purpose award called the Certificate in Quality and Regulatory Practice in the Pharmaceutical Industry.

This new modular course aims to introduce learners to the quality systems and regulatory framework that assures the quality, safety and efficacy of medicinal products.

Griffith College Cork runs a variety of both full-time and part-time, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in law, business, accounting and finance, computing science and pharmaceutical management in addition to professional programmes in law, ACCA and CPA accountancy.

Griffith College Cork also offers a variety of short courses including Human Resource Management, Business Management, Leadership Skills, Marketing Management, Online Marketing and Digital Strategy and Project Management, which are a perfect option for those who are looking to upskill, but may not be able to commit to a degree programme.

As Griffith College Cork continues to develop and grow its offering, it is also determined to ensure that learners have the best facilities to study with in order to maximise their learning potential.

All lecture rooms and computer labs are equipped with the latest technology, the college has said.

Griffith College Cork is located on a large five-acre campus on Wellington Road, and the west building of the campus has recently completed an extensive renovation over the past 18 months.

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Griffith College, Cork in conjunction with the Government, has delivered funded and partially funded courses to learners through the government’s HEA July Stimulus and Springboard+ initiatives.

Griffith College Cork sits in the heart of Cork city, just a short ten-minute walk from St Patrick’s Street, where learners can immerse themselves in the dynamic culture Cork city has to offer.

With Kent Station Cork and Cork city’s bus station in Parnell Place, Griffith College Cork is easily accessible for learners travelling from outside the city, or for international learners who want to explore more of Ireland on their days off.

Griffith College Cork is strongly committed to the creation of a positive learning environment.

This relaxed and productive atmosphere has been achieved by developing a strong pastoral care ethos.

This is evidenced by the open-door policy of lecturers, the operation of all lectures on a first-name basis, the provision of both written and oral feedback on formal and informal assignments, and the close, friendly working relationship between learners and staff, all of which are based on a spirit of trust and collaboration.
