Dr Derek O’Byrne, Registrar and Vice President for Academic Affairs at WIT said: “The applicant must have applied to WIT through the CAO application process for 2020 entry and have achieved the required points for entry into their chosen programme of study and met all other criteria set for the programme (except maths requirement).
