MATHS PROGRAMME FOR FURTHER EDUCATION STUDENTS

 

A programme will be delivered for FE students who wish to meet the Maths minimum requirement for entry into programmes of study in the Business and Humanities field in Cork Institute of Technology September 2016.

This programme is suitable for students who are applying for programmes of study in the Business and Humanities field in Cork Institute of Technology in September 2016, and who are

Mature students who do not have a Leaving Certificate or specific FETAC Maths modules

OR

School leavers who took foundation level Maths in their leaving certificate exam.

 

Currently in CIT if a prospective student does not meet the Maths requirement, any points accumulated through the FETAC award cannot be used for entry into year 1.

This Maths initiative is for prospective students who wish to apply using their FETAC points, but do not hold a relevant qualification in Maths. The programme is free of charge. There will be 30 places available and these will be allocated to the first 30 applicants.
