The Central Applications Office (CAO) processes applications for undergraduate courses in Irish Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). Decisions on admissions to undergraduate courses are made by the HEIs who instruct CAO to make offers to successful candidates.
The CAO is now closed to new applications for 2023, with the exception of Available Places courses. These courses appear on the CAO's Available Places list on the CAO website.
The CAO will reopen for new applications for 2024 entry in early November.
