The deadline: Tomorrow is the last day to submit the CAO form

Whether you've always wanted to pursue your dream career or just want to add an educational edge to your repertoire of skills – going to college is never a bad idea. 

Fancy spicing up your life with some further education? 

Then you better act fast. 

Tomorrow is the closing date for CAO applications, so if you're planning on throwing your hat into the ring, now would be the time. 

This date is the cut off point for entry to all first-year undergraduate courses. 

If you list your chosen courses and then change your mind, don't despair. 

If you need more time to mull the decision over, applicants can modify their course selection up until July 1, though for some programmes that is not allowed.

Dr Derek O'Byrne from Waterford Institute of Technology shared some sage advice with for all those applying with the CAO.

'It’s a difficult process, there are a lot of choices available to people,' he noted.

'What’s really important though is that they pick programmes that very much suit their skill-sets and their interests.'

'If people pick a programme that they’re interested in, and that they enjoy, they’re much more likely to do well in that programme,' he said.
