Further Education and Training (FET) Applicants
How do I apply?
Eligible QQI-FET students should apply online through the Central Applications Office (CAO) website by February 1st 2022. Successful applicants are admitted on a competitive basis to year one of a degree programme.
What FET awards are accepted?
Applicants must have obtained a full QQI Level 5 or 6 major award. A Module Certificate is not sufficient. A full QQI major award typically contains 8 modules.
Students are required to have a minimum of 5 distinctions* (80% or better). Some courses require distinctions in specific modules, or a specific QQI 5/6 major award. It is important to know which major awards are accepted for entry to these courses.
Places are limited and offers will be allocated on applicant’s sore only. All specified requirements must be met to a minimum of 120 credits. The scores for each of the best 8 modules are added up to give a grade points tally. Only the best 8 modules will be counted.
Work Experience and Work Practice Modules
*5N1356/6N1946/W20008 Work Experience and 5N1433/6N1947 Work Practice cannot be used as one of the required distinctions for any degree course.
What courses can I apply for with my FET Award?
