A completed application form, digital photograph and copy of transcripts for all university-level degrees (if applicable and excluding those taken at UCD) will be required. A telephone interview with the Programme Director may form part of the application process. The interview helps determine whether the programme is the most appropriate educational solution for the applicant.
Participants should hold a primary degree and have completed the UCD Diploma in Business & Executive Coaching or another accredited Business Coaching programme. Consideration will also be given to applicants who do not fully meet this requirement but have substantial experience in business coaching.
The diploma programme is demanding and participants should be free of other responsibilities on the days of the workshops. 100% attendance is required.
