Colleges Ontario and The Technological Higher Education Association of Ireland have renewed the pathway that allows Ontario College students to complete honours degree programs in Ireland.
The agreement allows graduates of two-year college programs in Ontario to secure an honours degree with two further years of study in Ireland. In some cases, graduates of three-year programs will be able to secure an honours degree with one further year of study (some bridging studies may be required). To date, over 500 Ontario college students have availed of the pathway.
“This offers tremendous mobility and flexibility to our students,” said Linda Franklin, President and CEO of Colleges Ontario. Applications are invited from Colleges Ontario graduates who wish to pursue honours degrees in all fields of study, including the following:
- Business (incorporating Marketing, Human Resource Management Accounting and Business Administration)
- Internet Applications and Web Development
- Hospitality & Tourism
- Architectural Technology
- Sports, Fitness & Recreation
- Art & Design
Tuition fees have been reduced by more than 15 per cent to €7500 per academic year ($11,000 CAD approx). The closing date for receipt of applications is May 31st for each entry in September. For further information, please contact the college office that advises on transfer pathways or send an email to your chosen Insitute.
