Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
By choosing ‘CEY’ Common Entry course option applicants are applying for a place on the programme but postponing the decision as to which Construction speciality (Quantity Surveying or Facilities and Energy Management) to opt for until the end of Year 3. This allows students time to explore the future career choices open to graduates in the different specialism streams. Expert guidance will be available from lecturing staff members in the Institute and ultimate choices can then be considered in light of academic performance across a range of subject areas.
