Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris has today (6 December) announced the establishment of a significant new policy in the development of a unified tertiary sector.
A new National Tertiary Office is to be established within the Higher Education Authority to develop joint further and higher education degree programmes with 13 disciplines being advanced this year.
The project will be jointly managed by the HEA and SOLAS through a new National Tertiary Office which will be governed by an MOU between both organisations.
This landmark policy will see students commence their third level experience in further education, but will complete the remainder in higher education colleges.
