Offers to start on the first year of one of our three year degree programmes are usually made based on the Ardteistimeireacht (Leaving Certificate). We use the UCAS Tariff to calculate our entry requirements, and most of our undergraduate courses require 112 UCAS Tariff points. These points should usually come from your Irish Higher qualifications, although we will also take into account points gained from Ordinary level certificates.
Depending on the course you apply for, we may require you to have certain subjects at B1 Higher level. Please contact us for more details about this.
We will also consider applicants with QQI or FETAC and a typical offer would be minimum level 5 certificate with 6 distinctions and 2 merits.
Applicants with a Higher Certificate from an Irish Higher Education establishment may be able to start on a later stage of one of our undergraduate degrees in the same subject area.
For taught postgraduate courses, applicants with an Honours Bachelor Degree, achieved in 3-4 years from a recognised Irish Higher Education establishment will be considered.
