MTU Cork QQI Maths Programme


Only applicable to applicants for full time undergraduate Business/Humanities related programmes in MTU Cork


The QQI Maths Programme consists of an elementary mathematics course that requires 12 contact hours and 12 independent hours, including two assessments of the work covered. 


The programme is aimed at prospective students who wish to apply for full time undergraduate Business/Humanities related programmes in MTU Cork using their QQI points, but who do not hold a relevant qualification in maths. 


The majority of full-time undergraduate Business/Humanities related programmes in MTU Cork require mathematics as a minimum entry requirement for entry into year 1. Check entry requirements of all programmes at www.cit.ie. 


Currently in MTU Cork, if a prospective student does not meet the maths requirement for his/her programme of choice, any points accumulated through the QQI award cannot be used for entry into year 1 of a programme of study.

  • Participants in the QQI Maths programme must commit to engaging in all elements of the programme, to include all videos, tutorials, exercise sheets and feedback sessions.
  • The QQI Maths Programme is limited to 40 places for applicants applying to CIT. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
  • Prospective students will be notified by email regarding confirmation of a place on the programme.
  • On completion of the programme students will have an assessment result that they can include with the CAO application should they wish to do so.
  • A good result on the QQI Maths programme does not in itself guarantee entry onto the Business/Humanities course of your choice in MTU Cork.
  • The programme will include a mixture of synchronous (real-time interaction) and asynchronous (non-real time interaction) delivery.
  • The material for the programme will be stored on a cloud-based learning management system which participants will receive access to upon registration.
