Course Deferral 

Deferral requests must be submitted to info@projectmanagement.ie, and it is at the sole discretion of the Institute of Project Management. Full course fees will need to be remitted before the Institute will consider granting a deferral.

Only one deferral is permitted. Students may only defer participation until the course iteration starting immediately after the programme in which they initially enrolled, and only attend the modules not previously completed.

A deferral fee of €200 will be applicable if deferment is requested subsequent to course commencement.

A deferral may be granted without additional costs due to extenuating circumstances, with supporting documentation, and at the sole discretion of the Institute of Project Management.

Should the course fees change between the date of deferment and the date of commencement of the next iteration of the course, the student will be liable for any additional amount due, which must be paid up to two weeks (14 days) prior to re-joining the programme.

Students who fail to show-up at an exam session, and do not submit a formal examination deferral request or do not notify the Institute within the requested time period, forfeit the opportunity to be granted the 12-month grace period to sit the exam free of charge.

The maximum period in which an examination deferral can be accepted is 2 years, starting from the date of the first exam deferred and including the 12-month free of charge grace period. After this time, students may need to attend part or the full course.

Special Educational Needs

The Institute of Project Management is committed to providing equal access to education and equal opportunities for students with special educational needs. We will endeavour to make sure that you can access supports in an open, relaxed, friendly and confidential way.

Students are required to initiate contact with the Institute and request reasonable accommodations up to two weeks (14 days) prior to course commencement. To put special accommodations in place students must send a request in writing to info@projectmanagement.ie. Exam accommodations will be agreed upon during the Needs Assessment.

It is very important that students disclose a special educational need as early as possible to ensure that necessary supports are provided. By delaying disclosure of a disability, students may be missing out on essential support.

Needs Assessment

The Special Educational Needs Assessment determine the level of support that students require. Based on appropriate evidence of a disability and information obtained from the student on the impact of their disability and their academic course requirements, the Institute will identify supports designed to meet the student's disability support needs.

Standard Disability Accommodations in Examinations

A range of Standard disability examination accommodations will be available to students.

A student may be eligible to avail of an extra time allowance during examinations (10, 15 or 20 minutes an hour extra time), which will be determined during the Needs Assessment.
