To apply for the Professional Diploma in Leading Digital Health Transformation, you must:
Hold a bachelor degree. (If you don't hold a bachelor degree, see the recognition of prior learning pathway outlined below)
Be working in the healthcare industry
Meet the English language requirements: IELTS score of 6.5 or equivalent score on another standardised test (certified proof should be uploaded with your application; see below for exemptions)
Recognition of prior learning
If you do not have an undergraduate degree at level 7 or above you may still be eligible to apply through recognition of prior learning (RPL). RPL is the assessment of knowledge, skills and competence previously acquired.
Learning occurs in many contexts which include work, involvement in social and community activities, or learning through life experience generally. RPL does not give credit for experience as such; rather it considers the learning that was acquired as a result of the experience.
RPL may be used to gain:
Admission to courses/programmes where a person may not have obtained the standard entry requirements.
Exemptions from course modules which duplicate the learning outcomes an individual has already demonstrably acquired through prior learning.
English language requirement exceptions
Exemptions may apply for:
Applicants who have completed their school or undergraduate studies (three or more years) through English in a country where English is the majority native language
Applicants who have completed their school or undergraduate studies (three or more years) in an English speaking institution in a country where English is not the majority native language and where an IELTS score of 5 or more was a requirement for admissions to the programme
Applicants who have been working in a country (three years or more) where English is the majority native language or for an employer where English language is the official language
Graduates of an RCSI Undergraduate, Masters or Professional Diploma programme in Dublin and Bahrain
Please note: Certified proof must be uploaded as part of your application.
