Following extensive engagement and discussions with QQI, Hibernia College is delighted to announce that QQI’s Programmes and Award Executive Committee have agreed on 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 have been revised as follows:

Result Range Former Award New Award
70%+ 1st Class Honours 1st Class Honours
60% - 69% 2nd Class Honours 2nd Class Honours Grade 1 (2:1)
50% – 59% Pass 2nd Class Honours Grade 2 (2:2)
40% - 49% Pass Pass

The College has now implemented this change and has applied these amendments retrospectively to all impacted graduates of PME programmes.

Revised transcripts, diploma supplements and parchments have been issued to eligible graduates.
