Eligibility for the full Level 7 degree:

To do the full Level 7 degree in Quality for Industry, you need to hold a Level 6 award in Science, Business or Engineering.

If you don’t hold a Level 6 award, but you have significant experience in industry (medical device, or pharmaceutical industry), then you can apply to GMIT to review your work experience to see if your work experience can be accredited as being the same as a Level 6 award. To apply for a review or for more information go to
