Expansion of Access Project 2007
Its core aims are:
To raise awareness about third level within participating schools
To increase numbers from participating schools entering third level
To support students to achieve their academic potential
To promote positive attitudes to education in the community We recognise that there are numerous economic, educational and social barriers facing many potential third level students.
Our minimum Academic entry Requirements are as follows:
B.Ed: Leaving Cert examination(s) with Grade C3 Higher Level in not less than three subjects, Grade D3 in three other subjects. C3 in higher-level Irish. At least D3 in ordinary/higher level Maths and C3 in ordinary level English or D3 Higher Level. Students must also achieve within a 60 points range of the 2007 CAO points requirement for the B. Ed.
B.A: Leaving Certificate with Grade C3 in two Higher Level subjects and grade D3 in four ordinary, or higher Level subjects (which must include Mathematics and either English or Irish). The college does not award points for Leaving Cert. Mathematics taken at Ordinary Alternative or Foundation level but will accept these for matriculation purposes. Students must also achieve within a 60 points range of the 2007 CAO points requirement for the B. A. N.B. These are minimum entry requirements and do not guarantee a place through the Access Project.
