A detailed list of required items will be included to all successful candidates in their CAO; however, it is at each students’ discretion as to how they obtain these items. Should students wish to avail of it, there will be suppliers available at the College on Registration Day each September where they can buy the required items; however, this is optional and the College in no way benefits or obtains commission from suppliers. Students may prefer to purchase from their own local suppliers in advance or avail of second hand options, all of which is acceptable. Detailed below are the approximate cost of the items required.

There are no food costs for weekly food practical classes as the College purchases these.
