Commencing this September, complete your Degree in Health and Social Care at Monaghan Institute in just two years…

Monaghan Institute, in collaboration with Letterkenny IT, plans to offer students the chance to complete a Level 7 Ordinary Bachelor Degree in Health and Social Care, over just two years – starting late September, 2019. This is a very exciting opportunity for people interested in progressing in the area of Health and Social Care to gain a Level 7 Degree locally.

What are the entry requirements?

Learners who have completed a full Level 6 award in Applied Social Studies or have built up a lot of experience in this area can apply through Letterkenny IT Advanced Entry route to year two of the three-year Level 7 Health and Social Care Degree.

How will the course be structured?

It is envisaged that the course will consist of three days’ work placement/employment in a relevant area and two days attendance at classes in Monaghan Institute. This will enable students who are in employment to remain working, if it is in a relevant field, while studying full time.

How can you apply?

There are still places available and additional applications are welcome. Anyone who has not already applied and is interested in pursuing this course please fill in the application form which can be found on the Letterkenny IT website under the advanced entry/add-on course section.
