Credits Awarded

Our Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours Degree in Digital Technology, Design and Innovation and our Bachelor of Science (BSc) Ordinary Degree in Digital Technology and Design award 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits. Internationally recognised, ‘ECTS’ credits are ‘European Credit Transfer System’ credits. ECTS is the common credit system in place at universities in Europe to assign credits to a programme or module.

On successful completion of our programmes, participants will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony in Dublin, Ireland, where graduates will be conferred with their Awards in St Patricks Cathedral Dublin at an official ceremony. Saint Patrick's Cathedral was founded in 1191, is the largest church in Ireland and is a prestigious location for the graduation ceremony. 

Admissions and Assessment Board

Admissions

On applying for one of our degree programmes the application of each prospective participant is considered in detail by our Admissions Office, and applications made under Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) are reviewed by our Admissions Board. The Admissions Board is chaired by Dr Sheila Flanagan (pictured), Head of Learning, Development and External Engagement, College of Arts and Tourism, DIT.

Graduate Assessment Board

With our globally-recognised accreditation partner, Dublin Institute of Technology, Digital Skills Academy has developed a rigorous project-based assessment system. This is overseen by our Graduate Assessment Board which is led by Dr Pat Frain (pictured), professor at University College Dublin, Graduate Business School.

Project Work

For successful graduation on our degree programmes, participants are required to submit, and achieve the required standard, in 2 multi-disciplinary team-based (group) projects, one of which is their major International-team project in our Industry partner programme. In addition they are required to complete and submit up to 10 individual assignments and continuous assessment components. Our panel of industry-expert advisors and mentors evaluate these assignments and team-based project submissions, and recommend participant grades for the graduate Assessment Board to consider.
