This programme allows prospective mature students an opportunity to demonstrate their ability in mathematics when applying for full-time undergraduate science/engineering courses in CIT. 

The CIT Maths for Matures Programme consists of a 17 hour elementary mathematics course, followed by an assessment of the work covered, and a feedback session.

Aims of the Maths for Matures Programme:

  • Familiarise prospective mature students with some of the mathematics that they will encounter in the first year of an engineering/science programme in CIT.
  • Provide an opportunity to prospective mature students to demonstrate their ability in and aptitude for mathematics.
  • Provide the Head of Department with a test result which would demonstrate if the prospective mature student has a suitable aptitude for mathematics in relation to the course(s) being applied for in CIT. The student can send the test result with their CAO application.

Important elements of the programme

  • Participants in the Maths for Matures programme must commit to attending the full programme, to include all classes, assessment, and feedback session.
  • The Maths for Matures Programme is limited to 25 places. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
  • Applications open from 9am on Wednesday 25th November to 5pm on Monday 7th December 2015.
  • Prospective students will be notified by email on/before Friday 4th December 2015 regarding confirmation of a place on the programme.
  • Classes commence on the 9th December 2015.
  • A good result on the Maths for Matures programme does not in itself guarantee entry onto the science/engineering course of your choice in CIT.
