What is a Restricted-Application Course?  

Certain courses are Restricted-Application Courses. They have early assessment procedures which may start as early as February. 

An application for a Restricted-Application Course will not be considered unless it has been included among your original course choices by 1st February


It has been added to your existing application not later than the final date for correction of errors or omissions (see the CAO Handbook). This date is normally 1st March and it is your responsibility to ensure that any Restricted-Application Courses are present and correct by that date.
Restricted-Application Courses which are included in Late Applications are invalid choices and will not be considered.
