Will I get a place in a 3rd level course if I do this course?2022-08-31T23:07:16+01:00

Many of our students each year progress to 3rd level courses. However, there is no guarantee of a place. Students apply through the CAO using their QQI level 5 results therefore students need to work hard in order to achieve the best possible results. There are limited progression places available, especially in Applied Psychology in UCC, so achieving the best results you can is critical to your success.
