Am I eligible?
You need to have all of the following
- All the subject entry requirements for the course. If you didn't have these in your school-leaving exams, it may be possible to meet them from your university examinations.
- The Leaving Certificate points required for the course (or equivalent admission requirements such as QQI-FET).
- Have passed 20 credits including sufficient modules and grades relevant to the course you want to enter in a level 8 degree.
Important Note: external applicants can only be considered if their results are received in time to commence the trimester, in accordance with the Admissions Policy.
How many places are there?
The number of places available is very small and is dependent on the numbers who have left during the first trimester. For many programmes there will be no places available. We will not know availability until near the end of the first trimester.
How will I be assessed?
Usually there are more applicants than available places. Admission is competitive and there is no guarantee that any application will be successful.
If your application is eligible, it will be assessed primarily on the basis of the compatibility of your modules and overall academic performance in your third level studies.
As offers will not be made after the third week of the trimester, in line with the Admissions Policy, applications can only be considered if the results are complete by the end of week 2 of the Spring trimester
