Appealing Exam Results;
The majority of IoB level 8 and 9 programmes have an online application process which can be accessed from the programme specific pages. Once students have been approved for entry onto their programme they will then be prompted to register online for their chosen module(s).
Level 7 programmes (except PDC) do not require an application process as the entry requirements for working in financial services is equivalent to applying to a level 7 programme. You can proceed directly to the shopping cart from My Institute or through the relevant programme page to register online for their chosen module(s).
A hard copy registration form may be needed for a small number of our programmes. If this is the case, it will be noted on the specific programme webpage. For example, a hard copy registration form will need to be completed if you are applying for an IFS Skillnet funded programme.
Your application will be considered based on the information you have provided. Once we are satisfied that you meet the entry requirements, you will be registered onto the programme and receive an email that will instruct you to register and pay for individual modules within your programme of study.
Please register for your next module within your shopping cart in My Institute.
For the majority of modules, you can re-register online through My Institute.
If the programme/module you are looking to re-register to is not appearing in this section, then please contact customer service on 01 6116500.
You will normally receive your textbook, (IoB published or the Principles and Practice of Banking textbook) within two weeks of the trimester start date or within 10 working days of your registration being processed.
We will send textbooks to your work address unless you have advised us that we should send them to your home address. IOB does not take responsibility for textbooks which have been misplaced or the non-receipt of textbooks which have been dispatched to home addresses. If you change your address after registering, you will need to locate the textbook at the address you provided at the time of registration.
It is your responsibility to make sure that you have the most up-to-date materials for your studies, including an up-to-date textbook. You can find a copy of the most up-to-date IoB published textbook on My Institute.
Re-registration students can purchase an up-to-date textbook if required, as this is not automatically re-issued.
IOB programmes are delivered through English and students are expected to be proficient in English. This proficiency is typically evidenced by use in the daily working environment, through passing English as a subject in the Irish Leaving Certificate Examination/equivalent, by achieving the minimum standard in a recognised English language test or through other documented verifiable means. This minimum standard is an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 6.5 (minimum 6.0 in each band in the academic version) or equivalent. If English is not your first language, you will need to submit evidence of achieving this standard, or equivalent. We will monitor students where English is not their first language and request evidence of English language standard if and where appropriate.
IoB , in association with IFS Skillnet, offer funding for a number of its programmes. This means that the company you work for can apply for funding their employees in these programmes.
