Before beginning your application it is important to familiarise yourself with key Central Applications Office (CAO) deadlines. Some universities and courses (medicine, veterinary medicine and dentistry) have much earlier deadlines, and it is important you are fully aware of those which may impact on your application.
All CAO deadlines for courses in Ireland can be found below, but Feb 1 is the most important deadline you need to remember when applying, as that is the normal closing date for applications. Key dates in the CAO application cycle include:
Applicants from outside the EU need not submit their university applications through the CAO. International students should contact their preferred Irish university’s admissions office directly or check the relevant website for more information.
Application deadlines vary for different courses and universities. If you are unsure about which deadlines you need to meet, a free consultation with SI-Ireland’s education consultants can help answer your questions.
