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 have foreign qualifications, please contact QQI / NARIC website (http://qsearch.qqi.ie/WebPart/Search?searchtype=recognitions) which may be able to map your foreign award to the Irish system.

 

Recognition of your experience in industry (also known as recognition of prior learning (RPL):

If you don’t hold a Level 6 award, and if you have significant experience in industry (medical device, or pharmaceutical industry), then you could 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 http://www.myexperience.ie

 

Applying to study individual certificates or individual modules:

  • If you do not hold a Level 6 award, and you do not have sufficient experience to get it recognised as equivalent to a Level 6 you can still do all the modules in the degree.
  • You will not graduate with a degree, but you will graduate with three separate Certificates.
  • Alternatively, you can apply to do a particular Certificate or a particular module(s).
