Mature Students

Mature Student Study

The Access Service aims to promote and facilitate entry to, and participation in, the academic programmes and student life of the Institute for mature students. LIT welcomes mature students and will accept applications from persons of mature years, (23 years of age on 1st January prior to admission). Such applications, together with documentary proof of relevant work experience and/or qualifications, which they wish to have considered, should reach the CAO office on or before 1st February of the relevant year.

All undergraduate courses in LIT are open to mature applicants. To secure a place, students without the normal academic entry requirements and who are of mature years must satisfy an Admissions Assessment Board that they have the basic ability and academic foundation to follow the course and take the examinations successfully.

LIT strongly encourages applications from mature candidates and is continually working towards wider participation of adult students.
