Waterford, the oldest city in Ireland, is a wonderful mix of the old and the new, history, culture and innovation. It is a city of colour and excitement. A rapidly developing and progressive city, Waterford has many attractions - its galleries and museums, its busy streets full of fascinating shops, small lanes to stroll through with 1,000 years of history meeting you on virtually every street corner, choice cuisine to suit every taste and every pocket, lively pubs and friendly smiles.

If you are looking for the craic, then Waterford’s the place for you. It’s a unique place full of DÊise men, blaas, crystal, hurlers, surfing......

Waterford has a great variety of pubs and nightclubs and a long theatrical and musical tradition. The local arts centre, Garter Lane, holds many exhibitions of art, design and photography and it runs regular workshops where young people can participate in drama, dance and other artistic activities. Garter Lane also has a modern theatre where the acclaimed Red Kettle theatre company stages most of its productions. The Theatre Royal hosts the Waterford International Light Opera festival each year along with a variety of other productions. College Hall on WIT’s campus is also a centre of choice for large-scale musical events.

It’s just a nice place to be, a nice place to hang out. Why don’t you come along and see for yourself?

7KH6SRUWLQJ/LIH Sport is a major part of everyday life in The DÊise, be it participating or shouting on your team. Hurling is the first thing that springs to mind but the story doesn’t just end there. Waterford is surrounded by water, both rivers and sea. There are lots of beaches in the county, with buses every hour to nearby Tramore, where students can take part in swimming, sailing, cycling, surfing and kite surfing. Waterford also has great facilities for horse riding, golf, GAA, walking trails, tag rugby, badminton and running. The list truly is endless. The Regional Sports Centre and the Kingfisher Club with its gym, pool and spa facilities are both within five minutes walk of the main campus at WIT.

+RZWR$SSO\4XDOLILFDWLRQVRWKHUWKDQWKH/HDYLQJ&HUWLILFDWH FETAC Certificate:

Scoring Process

This scheme provides for the scoring of applicants presenting FETAC (NCVA) examination results. The scored results will be entered into the CAO system in the normal way.

Each level 5 and /level 6 component is scored as follows: Distinction: 3.333 points Merit: 2.222 points Pass: 1.111 points

FETAC has introduced a new awards system known as the Common Awards System, or CAS. All FETAC awards will be part of CAS from 2014. CAS awards will replace existing linked FETAC awards. As a result a, new scoring system for FETAC awards will apply for entry through CAO to higher education from 2013. This scoring system will apply to all relevant FETAC level 5 and 6 awards listed on the CAO and higher education institution website. The following minimum entry requirement will apply to graduates of FETAC seeking admission to courses at Waterford Institute of Technology: • Higher Certificate (Level 6) Minimum entry: FETAC Level 5 or Level 6 award. • Ab-initio Degree (Level 7) Minimum entry: FETAC Level 5 or Level 6 award. • Ab-initio Honours Degree (Level 8) Minimum entry: FETAC Level 5 or Level 6 award including a distinction grade in at least three modules. Please refer to the FETAC website (www.fetac.ie) for changes to the award structure.

Nursing Minimum Entry Requirements: Bachelor of Science in Nursing Courses Students are eligible for consideration for entry to nursing courses when they: 1. Obtain a Level 5 award, with a minimum credit value of 120 in one of the following major awards: a. Nursing Studies : 5M4349 Or b. Health Care Support:5M4339 Or c. Community Care: 5M2786 2. The Level 5 major award must include the specified component awards as listed below: a. 5NO749: Anatomy and Physiology OR 5N2746 Biology b. 5N1279 Human Growth and Development c. 5N4325 Nursing Theory and Practice d. 5NO690 : Communications Whilst FETAC applicants may meet the requirements outlined above and be eligible for a nursing degree programme, due to the small number of places available, a random selection system is operated by the CAO. Rules for eligibility • Progression is on the basis of achieving a Level 5 or 6 major award, with a minimum credit value of 120. Component awards, or achievement of less than 120 credits, will not suffice. • It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that their FETAC registered centre applies to FETAC for a major award prior to application to CAO. • A major award may be achieved over more than one year. Waterford Institute of Technology requires that an applicant’s major award must be achieved and /or scored in a single sitting i.e. over one certification year, between 1 August and 31 July. • In addition some programmes in higher education require achievement of specified component awards, specific grades in individual component awards, or additional awards such as mathematics. Applicants are advised to confirm details of any specific requirements with the Admissions Office of the individual higher education institution. Details may also be found in the FETAC section of the CAO website.

16

Waterford Institute of Technology

This is then multiplied by the individual component credit value to a maximum 120 credits, a total of 400 points. For components with a credit value of less than 5 credits, multiply the credit value by 15. Components leading to the best 120 credits are scored and applicants are ranked accordingly. The best 120 credits come from minor awards achieved with the highest grades. The transcript for major awards lists the award code and title, grade and date of achievement for individual components required for the major award, and for any components achieved in any other certification period. FETAC forwards all relevant results achieved by applicants to the CAO. This scoring system replaces that of the original higher education links scheme and that of the ‘pilot’ scheme, and applies to all results achieved from 2013. Some applicants will combine components achieved prior to the introduction of CAS with others which are part of CAS. The scoring is managed by CAO according to the system above. Level 5 and 6 Certificates, i.e. major awards, achieved before the introduction of CAS are also scored according to the system outlined above. To view the list of FETAC awards, please view the leaflet ‘Progression for FETAC Level 5 Certificates and Level 6 Certificates’ on www.fetac.ie/fetac/documents/Prog_HEC_2011.pdf The maximum number of points that can be obtained is 400. FETAC results cannot be added to Leaving Certificate points. Where applicants have taken both exams, the higher points will be considered for rating purposes. Applications must be made through the CAO by the 1st February. If you are taking 2013 FETAC examinations, please ensure to enter your PPS number on page one of the CAO application form.

Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme WIT treats the link modules as a single subject and awards points as follows: Pass: 30 points Merit: 50 points Distinction: 70 points This is automatically computed by the CAO and will count if it is one of your 6 best subjects. It will not, however, substitute an honour where one or more are required.

Leaving Certificate Applied Programme The Leaving Certificate Applied Programme was designed primarily to prepare for the transition from school to working life. It is not intended for direct transfer into third level. However, students with the LCAP who have completed a FETAC award can be considered for entry.

PDWXUHVWXGHQWV Going to college is an exciting time, full of expectation, trepidation and hope for the future. It can also be an anxious time, no more so than for students coming back into further education after being away from it for a few (or many) years. At WIT we have lots of support services to help you in deciding what option is best for you and in your transition to college life. )UHTXHQWO\DVNHGTXHVWLRQV Do I qualify as a Mature Student?

There is no upper age limit. Why should I consider third level education as a mature student? Mature students decide to enter third level education for a variety of reasons: • To complete their education and get a qualification • To further develop an interest in a given subject • To improve their job prospects • To retrain for another career • To develop their social and personal skills How do I apply for a place on an undergraduate course? There are two main steps to take: • Fill out the CAO form before either 1 February 2013 or the late application deadline on 1 May 2013 • Fill out WIT’s Supplementary Assessment form, which you will receive directly from WIT’s Admissions Office once you have applied

What are the key points when filling out the CAO form? • The form can be filled out online or downloaded from www.cao.ie • There are four pages, the last two are specific to mature students (and other non-standard students) • Page 2: Write “YES” in the Special Category box • Page 3: Tick Box F to ensure you are considered a mature student (and any other relevant boxes) • Page 4: Provide a personal statement and provide details of other information relevant to your application. See the CAO handbook for full information but the types of information are: educational qualifications, current studies, non-certified courses, employment details, voluntary work or hobbies / interests. All support documentation must be attached to the form • Read the CAO handbook prior to filling out the form How are Mature Students selected? WIT will assess your suitability based on your CAO application and the Supplementary Assessment form. You may be required to provide additional information for a small number of courses - the Admissions Office will send information on this with the Assessment form. You may also be interviewed.

Applying before late application deadline 1 May 2013

Do I need to have work experience? It is not a prerequisite but it would be an advantage to have work experience related to the particular field of study chosen. However, each mature application is dealt with on an individual basis and a lack of relevant work experience will not rule you out.

7RS7LSVIRU0DWXUH6WXGHQWV Tip 1. Choose your course carefully. Find something you enjoy and then find a way to make it pay. You know more than you think so don’t be worrying. Worrying and stressing use up time and energy you may as well use for studying. Tip 2. When it comes to exams, you won’t be asked anything you haven’t been told in class, so… Tip 3. Go to your lectures! Tip 4. The only stupid question is the one that goes unasked Tip 5. For matures students... treat college like being self-employed with one big pay day at the end.

Career Opportunities One of the most important challenges for the continued success of the financial services sector outlined in the 2004 IDA report is the required development of specialisation in some areas of financial services, for example, risk management, treasury management and derivatives, mathematical and analytical skills. From research carried out by the IDA it is considered that there is currently a shortage of these specialist skills available and in order to ensure continued success in the industry it is considered imperative that Ireland builds its pool of mathematically literate skill sets as they will be a key enabler to a successful high value financial centre.

YEAR TWO

What is Sustainable Civil Engineering? Civil Engineers are increasingly working to achieve safe and sustainable development in a cost-effective, environmentally protective and socially responsible manner. They utilise engineering principles to enhance the built and natural environment, and contribute to environmental protection and remediation, water conservation, environmental biotechnology, materials and infrastructure development. The completion of a civil engineering project involves the solution of technical problems from which the cooperation among professionals of many different disciplines is needed. From conceptual design to forensic study of failed performance, civil engineers need the mathematical, scientific and computational tools to solve problems associated with developing and sustaining a civilised community. Central to the current and future civil engineering profession is the core issue of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sustainabilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

What is the Bachelor of Arts (Hons)? The Bachelor of Arts (Hons) is an interdisciplinary three year course with a major/minor structure. The course has been developed to provide students with a wide range of study choice . Students will study their Major Subject in addition to two subjects from the Minor disciplines in their first year. On successful completion of year one, students will maintain their Major Subject and choose one of their two Minor Subjects to study in years two and three of the course. Students will therefore graduate with a depth of knowledge and skills in at least two fields, while having a breadth of understanding in other areas. The course encourages the students’ creativity, enterprise, and ethical and social awareness, as well as giving them the opportunity to demonstrate and develop leadership potential.

For details of the range of Major and Minor Subjects on offer please check the WIT website (www.wit.ie/WD200). All Minor Subjects will be offered but individual subjects will only run if there is sufficient demand.

Unique Feature: The Interdisciplinary Seminar A unique feature of this course is that students will undertake interdisciplinary seminars that combine their chosen Major and Minor Subjects in each semester in years 2 and 3. These seminars will facilitate students in developing an ability in forging theoretical and practical linkages between different domains. Drawing connections between ideas, concepts, theories, assumptions, instruments,

media, practices, histories and mindsets associated with different disciplinary paradigms is not only intellectually challenging and rewarding, but also profoundly useful in a practical sense. ‘Real world’ problems are nearly always multifaceted and interconnected. To solve such problems effectively, one needs to have an interdisciplinary mind that is well equipped with knowledge, cognitive skills and the ability to see the bigger picture. Career Opportunities Honours Arts graduates work in a range of industries, both nationally and globally, including the private sector, government and non-government organisations. They are employed, for example, in the civil service, the public service, the diplomatic service, training and development organisations, teaching, journalism, public relations and communications, advertising, banking and business, management and consultancy, politics, human resources, translating and research, and many more. The BA (Hons) with Religious Studies (Major only) has been accepted by the Healthcare Chaplaincy Board as an approved degree course for those wishing to apply for certification as a Catholic Healthcare Chaplain. French (Major), Irish (Major and Minor), Religious Studies (Major and Minor), Sociology (Major and Minor) and Spanish (Major) have been approved by the Teaching Council of Ireland for Post-Primary Teaching. Follow on Study Graduates can proceed to a Masters degree by Research in their chosen Major discipline at WIT or elsewhere, as well as various other taught Graduate Diploma and Masters programmes. BA (Hons) International The BA (Hons) International is a four-year version of the BA (Hons) course. Admission takes place in second year and students spend their third year studying at an approved partner university or third level institution abroad, before returning to complete their final year at WIT.

The rationale for this honours degree is based on an analysis of the importance of the Food and Drinks industry in Ireland. To support the development of the course extensive consultation was carried out with industry stakeholders. In order to offer a course with a unique and innovative approach, cross departmental co-operation has been a major feature in its development. Unique Features of this Course • The modules in this course bring together science, business, enterprise and the culinary arts responding to the needs of the food industry. It also includes real industrial type tasks such as market research, business plan development, product innovation and manufacture, sensory analysis and show casing of new products. • The sector faces a challenging environment to maintain competitiveness in export markets. Energy costs, currency costs, consumer demand, labour costs and regulatory issues all have an effect on competitiveness. These issues will be addressed by the skills and knowledge acquired by graduates to take up the challenges that lie ahead for the Irish food industry. • This one year add-on Honours degree responds to the current needs of industry in an innovative and imaginative way. The graduates from this course will have the necessary skills based on science, business and enterprise to face these challenges. Career Opportunities Our industry stakeholders have had a very active role in developing this course. Each company agreed that it was important that the students need to develop more skills that will benefit themselves, their employability and in turn the sector as a whole. This is achieved by offering the BSc (Hons) in Food Science and Innovation. Industrial partners to date include, the Dawn Group,(Dawn Meats, Dawn Pork and Bacon, Convenience Foods, Glenpatrick Spring Water), Glanbia, Diageo, Dunhill Cuisine, Flahavans, Iverk Fruit and Vegetable, Paganini Foods and Wexford Creameries.

Follow on Study Graduates from this course have the opportunity to progress to postgraduate study at both masters and PhD level. The Food Industry in Ireland “The food and drink industry is Ireland’s most important indigenous sector. With a gross output of over E18 billion and total employment linked to the sector at 230,000, it is a vital part of Ireland’s economic and social framework. Innovation and development within the sector is driven largely by consumer trends and preferences. Consumers are at the heart of everything that the food and drink industry does and it is continuously adapting to better serve their wants and needs.” (Paul Kelly, Director, Food and Drink Industry Ireland.). To become the most highly innovative food country in the world a recent Bord Bia report (Pathways for Growth, 2010 by Professor David Bell and Mary Shelman of the Harvard Business School,) suggests that Irish food exporters should focus on innovation leading to brand building based around customer feedback as a means to capturing greater market value.
