This webpage contains the current core academic regulations, policies and procedures specific to Munster Technological University (‘MTU’) that previously applied at Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) immediately before the establishment of MTU under the Technological Universities Act 2018 (hereafter ‘MTU (Cork) Regulations’).
The MTU (Cork) Regulations apply to the modules and programmes to which they applied immediately before the establishment of MTU, and any students of those modules and programmes are subject to the MTU (Cork) Regulations in respect of the matters covered by those regulations.
This decision has been ratified by MTU Governing Body and the regulations shall remain in place until such time as they are altered by way of amendment or replacement by MTU.
Oversight of MTU (Cork) Regulations and their implementation is provided by the Cork Academic Legacy Committee, a committee of MTU Academic Council. The Cork Academic Legacy Committee is accountable to MTU Academic Council for the responsibilities assigned to it.
Where reference is made in the MTU (Cork) Regulations to Cork Institute of Technology, this should be read as referring to MTU, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
Where reference is made in the MTU (Cork) Regulations to Academic Council, it should be read as referring to the Cork Academic Legacy Committee, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
Where reference is made in the MTU (Cork) Regulations to a particular Office or Post this should be read as referring to the Office or Post that previously applied at Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) immediately before the establishment of MTU on January 1st, 2021.
In the event that there is any doubt, uncertainty, or apparent conflict as to whether a particular regulation, policy or procedure applies in any given case, MTU has determined that any such questions will be resolved by consensus between the two Vice Presidents responsible for academic affairs. Failing such consensus, the President of MTU shall determine the position.
MTU is committed to the highest quality standards, to continuous quality improvement and enhancement and to the creation of a quality culture. The development of an integrated Academic Quality Assurance Framework for the University is being progressed as a matter of high priority.
