More than 79,000 applications for third-level courses were received by the Central Applications Office by its 1st February closing date.

That is an increase of more than 6,200 applicants, representing an 8.5% increase on last year’s data.

There was a significant increase in applications for Business and Administration courses, as well as Nursing and Midwifery.

The communications officer for CAO, Eileen Kelehan, said, “The majority of CAO applicants will be permitted to use the Change of Mind facility when it opens on 5 May to add, remove or re-order course choices, which will result in changes to the figures released today.”

Late applications are also being accepted up to 1st May.
