Entry Requirements


Offers to start on the first year of one of our three year undergraduate degree programmes are usually made based on the results achieved in the Ardteistimeireacht (Leaving Certificate).

Most of our undergraduate courses will 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 a minimum Level 5 certificate with an overall merit profile of 3+ distinctions.

Applicants with a Higher Certificate from an Irish higher education establishment may be able to start on a later stage on one of our undergraduate degrees in the same subject area.

Holders of the International Baccalaureate Diploma with 26 points or more will be considered for direct admission to Bachelor degree courses
