Renaissance Academy to provide opportunities to develop new skills through socially inclusive, engaging education courses for the over 50’s
Renaissance Academy is Ireland’s first-ever university for mature minds. At Renaissance Academy, we strive to provide a comfortable, social environment for members aged 50 and over to pursue high quality continued learning courses. Focusing on building a community of like-minded people through a high quality academic and social programme, we want to offer everyone, everywhere the opportunity to learn new skills, languages and hobbies, coupled with enjoyable social events at our state-of-the-art premises and other prime locations across Dublin. Our flexible memberships cater to either a full year of studies or drop in/drop out courses. We firmly believe life begins at 50, and, at Renaissance Academy we welcome you to join the growing community that hunger for knowledge, excitement, and new friendships.
A ‘gym for the mind’, we are located in Maple House at South County Business Park; a 1-minute walk from the Central Park Luas stop. We offer over 30 courses that cater for all interests, both academically and socially.
Our classes span across two different divisions:
- Arts, Humanities and Personal Development
- Business and Education
All of our members are granted full access to all courses in each strand. Some of the many standout courses hosted by the academy include technology, architecture, gardening, design, photography, philosophy, fashion design, yoga, entrepreneurship and politics among others. Home study is also an option, however we prefer members to meet one another in-person and have rolled out a number of health and safety measures to ensure the protection of all involved.
At Renaissance Academy we want to connect like-minded individuals and help combat isolation. We offer an umbrella course-fee, meaning you can pay for just one course or register for unlimited sessions from just €199 per month, no strings or extra costs attached.
Our members can embrace their autonomy as lifelong learners, choosing the courses of their preference across each strand of learning, Arts, Humanities and Personal Development and Business and Education. With an ‘Ala Carte’ option to pick and choose what you might like to learn and when, developing your own optimal learner experience has never been easier. A simple monthly subscription, our seamless drop in/drop out format provides learners with flexibility, giving them time to change their learning experience on a daily basis.
We like to focus on keeping people connected and being sociable is a core part of being a member. We bring our members on gallery visits, wine tasting trips and walking tours among others. At Renaissance Academy it’s all about learning new skills and making friends in a comfortable, boutique learning environment.
