What is QQI/FET?

The Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) Further Education and Training (FET) entry routes are designed for students coming through level 5 or level 6 courses from Colleges of Further Education and are seeking a level 8 course in University College Cork. UCC offers specific first-year undergraduate degree programmes for students who have achieved the relevant awards. Most of our undergraduate courses are linked to QQI level 5 & 6 courses in Colleges of Further Education. This is an entry route that works just like applying through the Leaving Certificate Route.
