Marino College has a direct progression link for access to all degrees programmes in the National College of Ireland. Past students have said "progression to NCI, DIT, DCU was much smoother than expected as many of the modules are tailored to help students to adapt to Higher Education. Progression to DIT to study business, tourism and hospitality is also a popular choice. The range of modules and skills undertaken also means that progression into the workplace is a very popular choice.
