GARDA VETTING
It is a requirement of the University, for certain programmes, that
students will be required to undergo a Garda Vetting process.
This requirement is due to the external placement element of the
programme which will bring the student into a position of trust and
may involve unsupervised access to students and/or vulnerable
adults. Programmes where Garda Vetting is a requirement are
indicated in the Specific Subject Requirements for that
programme. Offers of a place on these programmes will be
provisional pending the outcome from the Garda Vetting process.
