It’s CAO application time - Applying for a Place at TU Dublin-Tallaght Campus

Application for entry to our First year of any Full-time Higher Certificate, Bachelor Degree and Honours Bachelor Degree programmes must be made through the Central Applications Office (CAO) :

It is a stressful time of year for Leaving Certificate students with mock exams looming, and lots more coursework to complete, but we recommend that students get their application in early to avoid the stress. Not to mention saving yourself a few quid! Some students may have already decided what they’re going to study, but don’t worry you still have plenty of time to make your up your mind. Applying by 1 February by 17:15pm will ensure you’re registered on the CAO system and over the next six months, you can consider all the various options available more closely.

TU Dublin and your CAO Course choices 

As you may know, Institute of Technology Tallaght, Dublin Institute of Technology and Institute of Technology Blanchardstown joined together on 1 January to become Ireland’s first Technological University – TU Dublin. TU Dublin is an exciting new milestone in Irish Higher Education with campuses in Tallaght, City Centre and Blanchardstown. But how will this affect your CAO application? Well, you won’t see much of a difference when you apply. If, for example, your first choice is Bachelor of Arts in Creative Digital Media in our Blanchardstown Campus, the CAO code will still be BN021, but remember when you start in September you will be registered as a TU Dublin student. Similarly, if your first choice is Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Social Care Practice in our Tallaght Campus, the CAO code will still be TA025.
