Warnborough College (Ireland) is an independent accredited college offering qualifications by distance learning. It was founded in Ireland in 1997 but its roots go back to Oxford when Warnborough College (UK) was established in 1973.
Today, there are two independent colleges under the Warnborough brand both offering unique learning opportunities to a wide range of students from around the world.
Our first distance learning degree programmes (launched in 1996) were only six months in length. Then, email was still relatively ‘new’ to the general public and webpages were primitive online copies of hardcopy brochures. We started trialing options with new technologies and insisted students (and supervisors) register an email address to keep in contact throughout the duration of their courses. The quickness of this communication technique proved to be such a success that we soon set up a separate department to deal with this form of learning.
We realised that trying to replicate existing processes and systems online was futile, and rejigged the whole system with ‘distance-specific’ processes. This allowed us to become more flexible and offer many options that would have been impossible or cost-prohibitive to do in a traditional educational facility. It allowed us to fulfil our philosophy of bringing education to students, rather than just bringing students to education.
We welcome adult learners who wish to, in Abraham Maslow’s words, self-actualise. Study with your own mentor and at your own pace to achieve the qualification that will enhance your career and status. Warnborough will enable you to learn in a friendly, supportive and caring manner. Learn across boundaries and widen your horizons, and become part of the Warnborough worldwide family.
We are based at the Capel Building in Dublin 7 on the Luas line (the Luas stops only two blocks away). Feel free to make an appointment and call in to chat with one of our course advisors. Alternatively, use our free online academic counselling service.
