Holders of the Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (LCVP) apply in the normal way through the CAO system. Points are awarded on the same basis as per the leaving certificate. The LCVP subject will be considered as a passing subject provided the student achieves at least a pass grade. This will apply to entry for honours degree (NFQ Level 8), and Ordinary Degree (NFQ Level 7). The following points scoring system will be used.

The following points scoring system will be used:

Grade                                                                  Points
Pass                                                                      28

Leaving Certificate Applied Programme (LCAP) Students:

The Leaving Certificate Applied Programme (LCAP) subjects do not meet the minimum entry requirements for admission to academic courses and are not considered as passing subjects. Holders of the LCAP may wish to undertake a QQIFET course in order to gain eligibility for entry to third-level courses in DkIT.
