Applicants who have not yet completed their application are urged by CAO to do so immediately, particularly mature applicants, applicants for the HEAR or DARE schemes, or those who are thinking about applying for a restricted course.
The Central Applications Office (CAO) application deadline for undergraduate courses in Irish Higher Education Institutions is Friday, 1 February at 5:15pm.
Applicants who have already made a CAO application have up to 5:15 pm on 1 February to add, remove or re-order courses free of charge. If an applicant is considering applying for a restricted course they should make sure to include the course details in their application before this deadline. If they do not apply for a restricted course before the deadline an additional fee of ?10 applies for the use of the Change of Course Choices facility which is available (to registered applicants only) from 5 February to 1 March at 5:15 pm.
The CAO Change of Mind facility opens on the 6 May. This facility allows applicants the opportunity to add, remove or change the order of their courses as many times as they like (and free of charge) right up the 1 July at 5:15 pm, however it is important to note that restrictions apply. Applicants are reminded that they should list their course choices in genuine order of preference.

Engineers Ireland calls for sixth year students to choose engineering courses at third level
Engineers Ireland has called for sixth year students to choose engineering courses at third level to future-proof economic growth and meet future skills demand. The call to action has come in advance of the CAO deadline of Friday, 1st February, which marks the application closing date for undergraduate courses in Higher Education Institutions.
Caroline Spillane, Director General of Engineers Ireland, said: “Our recent survey of members has predicted that over 6,000 new jobs will be created in the engineering sector this year. However, 94% of engineering employers surveyed see the shortage of engineers with the right skills as the main barrier to business growth. The reality is that the number of students moving into third-level engineering and technology sectors needs to be much larger to meet employers’ future needs for graduates.”
