NFQ fan low res


IBAT College Dublin, in conjunction with our learning partners, offers a wide range of full-time and part-time programmes from short skills-based programmes to full-time honours degree and postgraduate courses. Many of the courses offered in IBAT College Dublin are on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ). The NFQ provides a structure to compare and contrast the level and standard of different qualifications in Ireland. This helps you to make informed decisions about your qualification choices, and progression routes available to you. All of your learning achievements can be measured and related to each other using the NFQ, and you can explain to others, nationally and internationally, which standard of education you currently hold or are studying towards. This becomes very important when you are considering further learning or when applying for a job, in Ireland or abroad.

In order to ensure the highest possible standard of education is provided, IBAT College conduct a number of internal and external reviews and have a Quality Assurance Handbook.
