About Moate Business College

Moate Business College provides further education - often referred to as 'post leaving certificate' or 'PLC' courses – to the population of the Irish midlands. From small beginnings in 1991 the college has grown to its current maximum capacity of almost 500 full-time students.

On completion of the Irish Leaving Certificate (end of secondary school examination) or its equivalent, students are entitled to apply to MBC for a place on one of its 12 courses.

We provide courses of one or two years duration. Our principal awarding body is the (Irish) Further Education & Training Awards Council.

A Fetac Level 5 qualification takes one year and a Fetac Level 6 qualification can be secured in a subsequent year on successful completion of the level 5.

MBC works tirelessly for the benefit of its students and will do it's utmost to provide the best further education possible.
