This year, a significant change will occur to Ireland’s education system as we know it.
A new initiative will allow students to begin a degree programme in a college of further education and end it in a university or technological university, without the requirement of CAO points.
In the post-Leaving Cert (PLC) route, students must complete the PLC and then enter into a CAO competition with fellow PLC graduates to achieve a degree place, within a quota.
The PLC system will continue but there will be additional joint programmes between further and higher education colleges, where students can spend a year or two in a college of further education, before transitioning to a higher education institution for the completion of their degree.
The further and higher education colleges will co-design these courses and further information will be available over the coming months.
