CAO Registration Now Open

The CAO is now open to new applications.(

This is a working application which means that you can add courses to it and remove courses as often as you wish up until the closing date of the 1st February 2022.  We would encourage you to register as soon as possible to get your CAO number so you can start working on your form. 

Ms. Duffy and Ms. Hannon will provide further information regarding this process in class next Thursday (11th November 2021). 

In the mean time please listen to the CAO recorded webinar (this will not be available to view after 10th Nov)


It is important to note that exemptions are a seperate matter to supplying HEIs with information about a disability or specific learning difficulty. 

If an applicant, for any reason, is seeking exemptions from minimum entry requirements (e.g. exemptions from Irish or modern language requirements) then they should contact the Admissions Offices of the Hgher Education Institutions they are applying to (or, in the case of NUI institutions they should apply to the NUI without delay and no later than 21 days after opening their CAO account - see for details).

Applicants must make arrangements for exemptions each year they apply.
