Access UCC - Further Education Transitions
Wednesday 13 October, 3.00-4.00pm
Join us as we place a spotlight on the mechanisms of applying to third level learning, and explain more about entry requirements for specific courses, highlighting supports that are available to support you on your journey to and through higher education.
Over a quarter of our undergraduate students enter UCC via Access pathways. The UCC Access Office delivers outreach activities thoughout the region to support transitions to higher education, including through Mature Student routes and QQI/FET admissions.
This event will highlight the broad range of UCC courses and the supports available to prospective students considering applying either as QQI or Mature applicants. A panel from Access UCC will discuss with students and staff from further education the various options, entry routes and supports available. This will be followed by a Q&A with attendees.
