The Higher Education Access Route

The Higher Education Access Route (HEAR) is a college and university scheme that offers places on reduced points and extra college support to school leavers from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds who are resident in the Republic of Ireland as evidence shows that socio-economic disadvantage can have a negative effect on how well a student does at school and whether they go on to college. HEAR applicants must meet a range of financial, social and cultural indicators to be considered for a reduced points place and extra college support.  HEAR is for school leavers under the age of 23 as of 1 January in the year of application to college who are resident in the Republic of Ireland.

Direct Applications/Add-On and Transfer Applications
The Institute’s Higher Certificate and Ordinary Degree qualifications are designed to be terminal qualifications and to prepare people for employment. However, a significant number of students use these qualifications to transfer to Ordinary Degree or Honours Degree Courses in the Institute of Technology, Sligo and other Institutes of Technology and Universities.

Students should be aware that the decision to admit transfers is totally at the discretion of the receiving institution. The V.E.C. Scholarship and Local Authority Higher Education Grant regulations facilitate such transfers within the State. See our Application Guide for further details.
