HET programme validation applications must be made through QHelp. Select ‘Programme Validation’ and then ‘I wish to make an application for HE Programme Validation’.
All relevant documentation for a validation application as per the Core Policies and Criteria for the Validation by QQI of Programmes of Education and Training (2016) must be included. A unique tracking number is issued automatically by QHelp. Queries relating to a particular application can be made by using this unique number, thus correspondence is stored in one place. Applications are made separately so that each programme is assigned a unique tracking number. A single invoice will be raised where more than one application is received on a certain day from the same provider.
When an application is made, it must include a cover page indicating the fee that is considered due to QQI.
Information on uploading documents and opening new queries can be viewed here.
QHelp will accept up to five documents of 5MB each.
Please see QQI’s Schedule of Fees (Update 2019). A template cover page is available on the QQI website.
