The REACH programme is an admissions scheme which offers places on ITB’s courses on reduced points, to school leavers from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. ITB has a reserved a number of places on its courses for REACH students at reduced leaving certificate points. This means that if eligible you will be considered for entry on a reduced points basis provided that your points achieved are within 90% of the points required for the ITB course you have listed on your CAO form (i.e. you are eligible to be offered a place where your points awarded fall short by less than 10% of the points required up to a maximum of 30 points) and subject to places being available.
The places are spread across all our courses and consequently a student may not be offered their first course choice, but might be offered a subsequent choice. The order of preference on the CAO application form should at all times reflect your genuine preference choice. Applicants must also meet the minimum course entry requirements to be considered for one of the reduced points places.
