BIFE col­lege signs for­mal col­lab­o­ra­tion with IADT

Bray People - - NEWS -

IADT and Bray In­sti­tute of Fur­ther Ed­u­ca­tion (BIFE) signed a for­mal Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MOU) on Tues­day last. This ar­range­ment will evolve a part­ner­ship and a com­mit­ment to joint staff de­vel­op­ment and events. An­drew Doyle, Min­is­ter for State was in at­ten­dance and wel­comed the for­mal col­lab­o­ra­tion. BIFE stu­dents now have a com­mit­ment from IADT to progress onto their level 7 and 8 De­gree pro­grammes. Up to 20 per cent of places on IADT cour­ses will be re­served specif­i­cally for fur­ther Ed­u­ca­tion In­sti­tutes like BIFE. There­fore a BIFE stu­dent who com­pletes a one-year Level 6 course can now progress into year two of an equiv­a­lent de­gree at IADT. Dr An­nie Doona, IADT Pres­i­dent, pointed out a sub­stan­tial num­ber of BIFE stu­dents make up the stu­dent pop­u­la­tion at IADT and that she looks for­ward to see­ing even more BIFE stu­dents there as a re­sult of the sign­ing. Ray Ted­ders, Prin­ci­pal of Bray In­sti­tute said that the new agree­ment is a great de­vel­op­ment in the ex­pan­sion of BIFE as a lead­ing In­sti­tute of fur­ther and higher Ed­u­ca­tion.
