QQI Qualifications and Links Information

QQI Minimum Entry Requirements

QQI Level 5/6 major awards are made up of a number of modules. Different sets of modules may lead to different major awards. Some UCC courses require specific major awards and others require a specified number of Distinctions in any of the linked awards. It is important to know which major awards are accepted for entry to these courses.

Applicants must have obtained a full QQI, Level 5 or 6 major award. A Module Certificate will not suffice. A full QQI major award normally contains 8 modules. 

Certain courses may require Distinctions in specific modules. Some courses may require a minimum set of Distinctions in any of the linked awards. Distinction requirements may be met by combining multiple sittings.

Meeting the minimum entry requirements does not guarantee a place.

Entry to the first year of a large number of degree programmes at UCC is available on a competitive basis to students who present with one of the recognised QQI qualifications listed in the section below. However, applicants must meet the specific module requirements and have achieved the required distinctions (i.e. 80% or greater).

QQI Scoring

Entry to the first year of the linked UCC degree programmes is available on a competitive basis to students who present with one of the linked QQI qualifications listed in the section below. Applicants must meet the specific module requirements and have achieved the required Distinctions (i.e. 80% or greater).

UCC counts the best eight modules from a full QQI award. The scores from these eight modules, taken at a single sitting, are added up to give a tally which is used to rank students and places are then offered in order of merit.

While applicants may matriculate over multiple sittings, they will only be scored based on one sitting. Distinction requirements may be met by combining multiple sittings.

Please consult www.qqi.ie and this CAO document for further information on the QQI awards system and scoring scheme.
