Course description

Award: NFQ Level 9 Minor Award

There is a strong demand in recent years for Regulatory Affairs (RA) professionals at manufacturing or distribution sites within the pharmaceutical, biological, biopharmaceutical and chemical sectors. This programme was developed with input from the Health Products Regulatory Authority and Solid State Pharmaceutical Cluster (SPCC).

This Professional Diploma is available to graduates with a background in quality, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical or chemical sectors. It is for those with an interest in organisational improvement and development through the use of Regulatory Affairs tools and techniques. For graduates who would like to learn about the EU regulatory requirements, as well as the main features of the regulatory system in the US, which is the most important other jurisdiction for RA professionals based in Ireland.

Course delivery combines traditional distance education with online learning. There may be some on-campus tutorials per semester. The programme consists of five taught modules over two semesters with a strong focus on the integration of the concepts, tools and techniques during the course of the programme.

Participants will learn to:

Understand both theory and practical application of RA tools and techniques to improve operational outcomes and efficiency. Apply RA methodology to help organisations improve performance and speed up the regulatory approval time.  Learners will also develop their confidence and interview skills, as well as CV development and career development.


Candidates who satisfy the eligibility criteria under Springboard+ can qualify for 90% or 100% funding subject to the availability of places. Please contact [email protected]
