It is possible to enter at start of Level4, Level 5 or Level 6 as well as the mid-point of Level 5 depending on prior experience or training. For example, graduates of the Planning Forum's legacy Foundation course will have completed the equivalent of the first 3 modules of Level 5 and may be allowed (subject to University approval) to use the work completed to request a starting point half way through this year, at the Advanced Diploma level. Graduates of the Planning Forum's legacy Specialist or Advanced Certificate may allow entry to the Advanced Diploma or BSc year depending on courses completed.
Points achieved are fully transferable and students may use them to return and advance to another part of the course in the future, or continue study in another discipline or at another 3rd level institution (subject to entry requirements of the alternative course).
