Almost 40,000 applicants have accepted a third-level place in this year’s first round of CAO offers.
More than 52,000 students received an offer this year, with half of Level 8 applicants being offered a place on their first preference course.
A second round of offers will be made on Thursday 27th of August.
In a statement the CAO reminded students who have accepted a second or lower preference course that they may receive an offer of a higher preference course in the second round. Those students are free to accept or ignore the later offer.
Students may also find a suitable course on the CAO’s Available Places facility. There are 200 courses listed on the site which are open to new and existing applicants.
The facility is free for existing applicants and is accessible via the CAO website.
Those who have not applied for a CAO place, but who now want to study, may also look for a course on the facility, for a fee of €40.
We at CareerWise would like to wish all students the very best with their studies.
