Recognition of Prior Learning

The Irish universities welcome applications from potential students who seek to have their prior academic or experiential learning recognised for the purpose of admission to (or exemptions from) a particular course or programme. In doing so, the Irish universities work within the policies and practices established through the Irish National Framework of Qualifications to encourage lifelong learning, access, transfer and progression for all students.

If you are interested in exploring the possibility of having your prior learning recognised for admission to an Irish university (or possibly exemption from a particular course component), please contact the Admissions Office of the relevant university.
