Welcome to the CUA eportfolio tool where you can build a portfolio to help you gain access into a higher education programme in the institutes of technology in Connacht-Ulster region including Galway-Mayo IT, IT Sligo and LyIT.

Before you start creating your eportfolio tool there is a number of steps you must take!

Step 1 Select a course and review the course information material on the institute websites at IT If you do not meet the standard entry requirements you should contact the head of department (see contacts) or the programme chair/coordinator to discuss your case. You will be advised as to the potential outcome of an application based upon RPL. 

Step 2 If the advice is to proceed with an application for the programme you should complete the institute's direct application form. 

Step 3 A mentor will be assigned to you and will recommend the type of evidence you need to provide in creating a portfolio. You will then proceed to creating your RPL eportfolio. 

Step 4 An assessor/ programme expert will be assigned to assess your eportfolio.

Step 5 You will be notified by the institute on the outcome of your RPL assessment and the next step.
