Springboard - Re-Registration Process for 1st Year DT265A Students

This email is for Higher Diploma students who started in September 2017.

The HEA have now opened the springboard courses website for you to confirm your re-registration for the programme. You need to confirm this re-registration so that the HEA will pay your fees again for this semester. Confirming this registration is a condition of the programme; and failure to do so will leave you liable for your own fees.

To confirm re-registration, you simply need to log in to the springboard courses website and click the re-registration /second registration button.

Closing date for this will be this week, but please do it now. It only takes a minute or two and will save you an awful lot of grief should you forget.

Class reps or anyone feeling useful, as this information is important, I would appreciate it if you also posted this on any Facebook or WhatsApp groups etc.

Thanks for your time.

Systems Analysis and Testing Tonight

The DIT will be closing at mid-day today so there will be no class this evening. We had scheduled next week as dedicated to CA Phase I, so we will switch the order and allocate this week to CA work.
I’ll be available online to help this evening (as long as the broadband keeps working). Check the webcourses module later for details of how to get in touch.
