Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) has announced new partnerships aimed at improving access to third-level courses in GMIT for Post Leaving Certificate (PLC) and Further Education (FE) students in the region.

The new agreements are with partners the Galway and Roscommon Education & Training Board (GRETB) and the Mayo, Sligo and Leitrim Education & Training Board (MSLETB). The partnership is committed to promoting and improving equity of access and seamless progression from FE courses to third-level courses in GMIT’s Galway and Mayo campuses.

Dr Fergal Barry, President of GMIT, says: “These agreements are in line with GMIT’s current strategic plan to promote and facilitate access, progression and transfer, and also in line with the Higher Education System Performance Framework which has, as one of its objectives, to “significantly improve the equality of opportunity through Education and Training and recruits a student body that reflects the diversity and social mix of Ireland’s population”. GMIT is proud of its record to date in providing equality of opportunity to diverse student cohorts and we have the ambition of significantly growing the number of Further Education students attending GMIT as a result of these new collaborations.”

Michael Hannon, GMIT VP for Academic Affairs & Registrar, says: “GMIT sees the importance of building closer linkages with the Education and Training Boards (ETBs) in the region.  This is with a view to mapping pathways for advanced entry, to promoting relevant pathways for progression to Higher Education programmes, and easing the transition of both second level and Further Education students to GMIT.”
