CIT Cork Colleges Progression Scheme (CCPS)
In addition to the Higher Education Links Scheme entry arrangements, Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) has established a special scheme for students who successfully complete courses in Further Education Colleges in Cork called the Cork Colleges Progression Scheme (CCPS).
Under the CCPS a number of courses in CIT are linked to certain courses in the FE Colleges.
CIT reserves a number of places on its linked courses for applicants receiving specified levels and other requirements in their awards.
Students taking a full QQI Level 5 or Level 6 award linked under the CCPS to a specific course in CIT may apply for year 1 entry.
Students taking a full QQI Level 6 award linked under the CCPS to a specific course in CIT may apply for year 2 entry.
All CCPS applicants should apply for the CIT course through the CAO – CAO deadline 1st February. Late CAO applications up to 1st May from candidates other than Mature Students. Applicants to year 1 and/or year 2 need to complete the CCPS application form online by 1st May.
The minimum requirement for year 1 or year 2 entry onto courses in CIT is a full QQI level 5 award with 5 merits. Some courses in CIT have more specific requirements. Check our database for specific requirements for your course https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Q5QjQuIjtVR3uF_nk0vhVuLCyXgMRouW5dKjSppctHI/pubhtml.
