PME AWARD CLASSIFICATIONS

Following extensive engagement and discussions with QQI, Hibernia College is delighted to announce that QQI’s Programmes and Award Executive Committee have agreed the following amended award classification system for the Professional Master of Education (PME) awards.

As a result of this approval, the award classifications for graduates of the PME programmes will be revised as follows;

Result RangeFormer AwardNew Award

60% - 69%2nd Class Honours2nd Class Honours Grade 1 (2:1)
50% – 59%Pass2nd Class Honours Grade 2 (2:2)
40% - 49%PassPass

The College will now commence the implementation of this change immediately, applying these amendments retrospectively to all impacted graduates of PME programmes. Given the extensive and complex process involved the College envisages concluding this exercise over the next 6 months.

Please note the following

  • Students graduating at our 2020 graduations will receive awards based on the revised award classifications and will receive updated transcripts.
  • Revised transcripts, diploma supplements and parchments will be issued to eligible graduates.

 

Please note that all impacted graduates will be contacted directly by the College.
