Further Education Students

You should apply for admission to Year One through the CAO if you hold a QQI Level 5 qualification, or a QQI Level 6 qualification that does not map to the course in ATU Galway-Mayo you want to apply for.

However, if you hold a QQI FET Level 6 major award, you are eligible for consideration to enter directly into the second year of related courses in ATU Galway-Mayo. 

More information on entry requirements and specific links between FET and ATU Galway-Mayo courses can be found here.
