Information systems officer without degree?

#1
I recently decided to drop out of university as I found the institution depressing and the work/student loans uninspiring.

I was wondering if it is at all possible to acquire entry as an information systems officer without a degree? I have a very high aptitude for computing (programming, hardware etc) and was hoping perhaps that would help.

No, unfortunately you need a first class computing degree for ISO.
Thank you for the swift response.

I'm aware it was on the requirement list, just checking to see if anyone was aware of any exceptions . . .

To be honest the RN website lists the minimum qualifications, rather than the desired qualifications, so there's no leeway in that particular field as it's a relatively small branch they can set the bar at a relatively high level.

Other vocational Graduate specialisations will accept a third class degree pass, subject to verification by AIB, likewise non-vocational 3rd class degrees are also accepted for graduate entry officers that only need the minimum of 5 GCSE's (A*-C including Maths & English) and 180 UCAS points as a minimum qualifying standard for entry.

Possibly Communications Information Systems (CIS) as a Rating is an avenue you may wish to explore.
