QQI-FET/FETAC LIT accepts QQI-FET/FETAC awards for entry on all programmes of study. The following minimum entry requirements will apply to graduates of QQI-FET/FETAC qualifications who are seeking admission to programmes at Limerick Institute of Technology:


Higher Certificate (Level 6) Minimum entry: A full QQI FET/FETAC Level 5 award totalling 120 credits.


Ab-initio Bachelor Degree (Level 7) Minimum entry: A full QQI FET/FETAC Level 5 award totalling 120 credits.


Ab-initio Honours Bachelor Degree (Level 8) Minimum entry: A full QQI FET/FETAC Level 5 award totalling 120 credits and including a Distinction grade in at least three modules.


Please note that special requirements may exist for particular programmes, for example, a requirement for a particular subject such as Mathematics.


A full FETAC award normally contains 8 modules. A full award may be accumulated over more than one academic year. In such cases, it is the responsibility of the applicant to contact QQI FET/FETAC for a full award where programmes are taken over more than one year. A QQI FET/FETAC Level 5 or Level 6 Record of Achievement does not meet the minimum entry standards.


From 2017, the maximum possible total score will be multiplied by 13 and divided by 12, to give a maximum overall points score of 390 for applicants from further education and training.


If a QQI FET/FETAC applicant also presents a Leaving Certificate, the CAO will use whichever is the better. Applicants to Restricted Application programmes or programmes where a Portfolio is required will have their Portfolio Score added to their QQIFET/FETAC Score.


Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (LCVP)


Students apply through the CAO in the normal way. The LCVP module will be considered as a passing module provided the applicant achieves at least a pass grade. This will apply for entry to Honours Degree (Level 8), Ordinary Degree (Level 7) and Higher Certificate (Level 6) programmes. With the introduction of the new Leaving Certificate grades, points will be awarded for LCVP Link Modules as follows:


Pass 28 points Merit 46 points Leaving Certificate Applied Programme (LCA)


The LCA subjects do not meet the minimum entry requirements for admission to academic programmes at LIT and are not considered passing subjects. Holders of the Leaving Certificate Applied programme may wish to undertake a QQI FET programme in order to gain eligibility for entry to third level programmes at LIT.
