FAQ’s - TU Dublin Blanchardstown

Is my international qualification suitable for entry?

Applicants who have obtained a qualification outside the Republic of Ireland or the UK are advised to compare their international qualification against the Irish National Framework of Qualifications to verify the level of their award. Please visit www.qqi.ie for more information. Instruction for all courses is normally through English (excluding any language modules) and applicants who do not have Leaving Certificate English must provide evidence of equivalent competence through school leaving or matriculation examinations or achievements of a minimum standard in recognised tests of English. In exceptional circumstances, students may be admitted to undergraduate courses without these formal certificates where there is evidence of studying through English.

When will the course commence?

Classes for part-time courses will begin on the week commencing 19th September 2022 (indicative date) on the night your first class is scheduled. The Academic Calendar for 2022/23 is available to view online here.

Where can I get a timetable for my classes?

Classes will be delivered on the days/nights advertised on the course page. A detailed timetable for each module will only be available on the night of registration.

Are exams held during the day or in the evening?

Exams are held during the day in January and May for all full-time and part-time students.

Can I apply for exemptions based on previous qualifications?

An application for exemptions will only be considered from a registered student. Therefore, you can only apply for exemptions once you have completed registration. Please note you must apply for exemptions before 30th September and you must discuss your application with your Course Co-Coordinator.

Are books included in the course price?
