The Higher Education Authority (HEA) is the authority in Ireland with responsibility for higher education since 1968 and placed on a statutory basis in 1971. The authority supports HEAnet, part of the GEANT network. The authority is responsible for the funding of Irish universities, institutes of technology and other third level colleges. The authority has presented many strategic reports since its foundation, a recent report was conducting into reforming medical training in Ireland; this proposed system should lead to the creation of a two route entry into medicine which will include entry via a bachelor's degree and aptitude test, in addition to the current "points race" system.
