All of the courses have a minimum entry requirement. Please note that MTU Cork offers a Recognition of Prior Learning system, details of which can be found here.



In MTU Cork RPL can be used to gain:

  • an exemption or mark for a module or for a number of modules;
  • entry to a course in first year where an applicant may not meet the standard entry requirements;
  • advanced entry to a course at a stage other than first year.

There are two main categories within RPL

  1. the recognition of learning which has already had formal certification within the higher education system in Ireland or abroad, often referred to as formal learning.
  2. the recognition of learning which has been gained through experiences in the workplace, in voluntary work or elsewhere, usually referred to as experiential learning.
