CAO Application

Further Education in Ireland
The purpose of the Central Applications Office (CAO) is to process centrally applications for admission to the first year of undergraduate courses in institutions within the Republic of Ireland and to deal with them in an efficient and fair manner. The participating institutions retain the function of making decisions on admissions. CAO is a private limited company registered in Ireland.

The CAO Application System is an arrangement by which applicants, using a single application form, may apply for up to 20 courses from the entire range of courses offered by the institutions in the combined CAO system.
Up to 10 degree courses may be chosen and/or up to 10 diploma/certificate courses may be chosen.
