This programme is offered on the CAO, and is a one year common entry programme to the four honours degree programmes in the Built Environment. This programme can be useful for those in the industry, but can also be viewed as a progressional step to enable students to progress to alternative programmes as developed within or promoted by DASBE.
This programme is offered on the CAO in addition to the four existing Level 8 honours degrees in the Department of the Built Environment. The Common Entry Year has been developed in order to advance the Transitions Agenda being pursued in Irish Higher Education, of better transition from second level to third level education.
This programme aims to give the student the first stage of an academically challenging educational experience, that will enable the student to develop the knowledge, skills and competencies to serve both the construction industry and society, in whichever specialisation within the industry they progress to study in years 2, 3 and 4 of the Honours Degree programmes in the Department of the Built Environment.
Successful completion of this Common Entry Year will entitle the student to progress into Year 2 of the following programmes, subject to availability of places:
- BSc (Hons) in Quantity Surveying
- BSc (Hons) in Property Valuation & Management
- BSc (Hons) in Construction Management
- BSc (Hons) in Civil Engineering Management
