NUI Maynooth continues to develop its Higher Education Links scheme, allowing students to progress onto Honours Degree programmes at the University. This booklet outlines the qualifications and other requirements for students who hold or expect to hold FETAC, HETAC or BTEC Certificates and who wish to pursue full-time, undergraduate degree programmes at NUI Maynooth. Any FETAC award (at Level 5 or 6), with a minimum of five distinctions, fulfills the general entry requirements for admission to the University. Prospective students should consult the relevant pages in this booklet for specific course entry requirements.

How to apply Applicants should first check that they fulfil the requirements for the particular course they wish to apply for, as shown in this booklet. In particular please note the scoring scheme as detailed on the following page. Application is made through the Central Applications Office (CAO). Application forms can be obtained by contacting: Central Applications Office, Tower House, Eglington Street, Galway. Tel: (091) 509800 Fax: (091) 562344. Application can also be made online at www.cao.ie There is a normal fee for applications received on or before 5.15 p.m., 1st February 2010. Late applications will be accepted up to and including 1st May 2010 on payment of an additional fee.

Mature Student Applications

Places on courses with FETAC/BTEC entry routes are available in the first instance for students under 23 years of age on 1st January 2010. If these places are not filled they will be allocated to qualified FETAC/BTEC mature applicants. A mature applicant is someone who is 23 years of age or over before 1st January 2010. In addition to applying to the CAO, as above, mature applicants must also submit a separate application form to NUI Maynooth. Contact the Admissions Office for more information and a paper form, or visit us on the web at http://admissions.nuim.ie, where you can download a form and/or submit your application online. For further information regarding admission or details of courses, please contact: The Admissions Office, NUI Maynooth, Maynooth, Co. Kildare.

Arts, Philosophy, Celtic Studies & Social Sciences

CAO Scoring Scheme for Selection of Applicants Applicants must have obtained a FULL award. A Record of Achievement will not suffice. A full FETAC award normally contains 8 modules. A full award may be accumulated over more than one academic year. In such cases, it is the responsibility of the applicant to apply to FETAC for a full award where courses are taken over more than one year. A minimum of five module distinctions are required for all courses. These distinctions and any required modules for a particular course may be satisfied by an accumulation of modules over more than one year. However, please note that applicants will be placed in order of merit based on the grades achieved in a single sitting. The majority of FETAC/NCVA modules have a credit value of 1 but some modules may have a credit value of 0.5, 1.5, 2 or 3. A maximum of the best eight modules (in any one sitting) are used for ranking purposes. A module with a credit value of 1.0 receives 3 points for a Distinction, 2 points for a Merit, and 1 point for a Pass. See credit value table below for details of points awarded for modules of credit value other than 1.0. The scores for each of the best 8 modules (from one sitting) are then added up to give the total best 8 grade points tally. The total best 8 grade points tally is then multiplied by 15 and rounded to the nearest whole number to give a ranking. Places reserved for FETAC applicants are then offered in order of merit based on the ranking. As the number of places available will be limited, those places will be allocated on a competitive basis based on the student's score. Where more than one student has the same score, students will be ranked on a random basis by the CAO.

= Grade Points per Module

Arts and the Social Sciences are among the most compelling and enriching areas open to students. Students of these subjects can expect intellectual stimulation, personal engagement, and a wellrounded education from their degree course. The subjects covered under the Arts and Social Sciences umbrella include those that have been fascinating students for centuries ­ such as literature, the classics, philosophy, mathematics ­ and newer disciplines such as anthropology, computer science, economics, modern languages, psychology, and sociology.

While the diversity of subjects is broad, they have one thing in common: an invitation to engage with life and how we live it today. In both Arts and the Social Sciences, you can study how people live, how they think, how they behave, how they interact with each other socially or economically; you can analyse our cultural, literary, historical, or political development; or get to grips with a fundamental analysis of human life through the study of its physical and biological processes.

To calculate the number of points earned per module, use the following equation:

Factor based on level x Credit Value of the module x Factor based on result Level 4: factor is 0.5 i.e. 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 3.0, or 4.0 Pass: 1 Level 5: factor is 1.0 majority are 1.0 Merit: 2 Level 6: factor is 1.0 Distinction: 3

For example, a student who receives a merit in a level 5 module with credit value of 1.5 will receive 3 grade points for that module:

Factor based on level x Credit Value of the module 1.0 x 1.5 Level 5: factor is 1.0 Credit value of 1.5 x Factor based on result x 2 Merit: 2 = Grade Points per Module =3

The study of Science or Engineering is a challenging and rewarding pursuit. Science and Engineering students can expect intellectual stimulation, personal engagement, and a thorough scientific or technical grounding from their degree course. The subjects covered under the Science umbrella include the fundamental areas that underpin all of the sciences ­ such as physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics ­ and newer disciplines such as biotechnology, genetics, bioinformatics, and multimedia. Engineering courses encompass computer, electronic, and communications engineering.

NUI Maynooth has an enviable reputation as a centre of scientific excellence. In 2008 we were named the Sunday Times University of the Year, partly on the strength of our research funding: we now attract the highest level of funding per academic in the country. We recently expanded our facilities with the launch of two new world-class research institutes. (For more information on research at NUI Maynooth, visit http://research.nuim.ie/.) In addition, we continually reinforce our links with industry. NUI Maynooth is ideally situated close to major technology companies such as Intel, IBM, and Hewlett-Packard, all of which have a strong demand for Science and Engineering graduates. As a student of Science or Engineering, you will learn how to enter into the unknown with an open mind. You will learn to think independently, logically and analytically, as well as developing your creativity and communication skills. Your theoretical knowledge will be reinforced through practical sessions at NUI Maynooth's state-of-the-art laboratories.
