Please click below to view a PDF information leaflet from the National Qualifications Authority of Ireland which explains your awards and how they can be used abroad and what levels they can be aligned too.
The Higher Education Links Scheme (HELS) links specific FETAC Level 5 and 6 Advanced Certificates to reserved places in a variety of higher education programmes. For 2011 FETAC CAO applicants there are 40 higher education institutions including universities, institutes of technology and private third level colleges offering places on a variety of courses.
In addition to the Higher Education Links Scheme (HELS) which links specific FETAC Level 5 Certificates and some Level 6 Advanced Certificates to a number of reserved places on higher education courses, the Institutes of Technology and some higher education institutions operate an admissions criteria and scoring system for non-specific FETAC Level 5 Certificate and Level 6 Advanced Certificate applicants. In addition some higher institutions may have further education requirements, so it is important that you confirm this and any other specific requirements with the CAO and the Admissions Office of the individual institutions.
