    Ah, actually I believe the intention is to stream the North American students who would normally go into the 5 year program with degrees already into the 4 year stream and free up the spaces in the 5 year program for EU students. In all the preliminary discussions at UCC the intention was to designate 15 spaces for North Americans in the Graduate Entry program, and to delete those spaces from the direct entry program. I sat through some very boring committee meetings to get this info, and I believe it is the primary reason why acceptances are soooo late coming out this year - they wanted to make sure they accepted people into the right program. I could be wrongm but I doubt it. Cheers,
    M

    UCC and UCD did not get accreditation and funding for the 4 year program this year. Only schools that have them are RCSI and Limerick. It's not a factor in the late acceptance offers this year. Last time I checked, there will be no GEP offers for North Americans at UCC.

    Nobody can confirm at this stage yet. It's definitely not happening for Fall 2007.
