Admissions Process for IEP
The eligibility conditions for admission to the undergraduate credit transfer program are same as for regular undergraduate engineering programs offered by Thapar University (TU). The students will be admitted in the branch available as per merit list. The students will also have a choice to choose a TCD branch, if available. (The TCD branch may be different from his/her regular TU branch). Thus, students opting for undergraduate credit transfer program shall be allocated two branches namely TCD branch and TU branch. The students seeking admission under this category will undertake courses of their TU branch for the first two years (majority of the courses are common during the first two years).
Transfer to Trinity College Dublin, University of Dublin (TCD), Ireland at the end of two years
The students will be able to pursue their education at TCD only if they obtain a minimum CGPA of 7.0 on a scale of 10 at the end of two years and have no backlog courses. If a student admitted in the undergraduate credit transfer program does not obtain the minimum CGPA, he/she will be required to repeat the courses where he/she obtained a grade lower than B-. However, in case the student is unable to meet the minimum requirements, he/she will undertake the whole program at Thapar University at an annual fee applicable at the end of 2nd year for the remaining two years.
