CAO South Africa : Registration on your Accepted Course

CAO South Africa: Registration on your Accepted Course

An applicant to CAO, having been offered a place and accepted it, only becomes a student of the HEI once they have completed the HEI’s registration process.

(A) General:

In general, you should apply directly to the appropriate HEI (and NOT through CAO) in the following cases:

  1. Any course not mentioned in this handbook.

  2. Entry to courses at the post-initial-year level. You must ask HEI Admissions Offices about application procedures.

  3. Short duration, one-term, part-time and occasional courses. See Section C below.

  4. Re-admission to Mary Immaculate College, Trinity College, University of Limerick, Maynooth University, and Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology.

  5. Follow-on courses at the Institutes of Technology. You must ask HEI Admissions Offices about application procedures.

  6. Certain mature applicants – see www.cao.ie/mature and Section D below for information about mature applicants.

  7. Postgraduate courses.

(B) Residence outside the EU: (past or present)

If you have at any time resided, or are at present resident, outside the EU, then you may be required to apply direct to some HEIs.

You must contact the Admissions Office of each HEI in which you are interested, to enquire whether you should apply through CAO or direct to the HEI. Different HEIs may have different policies. You should make such enquiries well in advance of the closing date of 1st February 2018 at 5:15pm. You may be able to view HEI policies on HEI websites. Failure to check the proper application procedure may have serious implications.

(C) Evening and part-time courses:

Most part-time and evening courses are not offered through the CAO application system and direct application must be made for them. The HEIs offer a wide variety of such courses and, if you are interested in these modes of study, you should make enquiries directly to the HEIs

(D) Mature applicants:

  1. Certain restrictions may apply in the case of mature applicants.

  2. Normally mature applicants should be 23 years old on or before 1st January 2018 for admission in Autumn 2018 and must apply by 1st February 2018 at 5:15 pm. However, some HEIs may have different age requirements, different definitions of mature applicants, etc., and some will consider applications received after 1st February 2018, but not for mature entry to primary teaching.

  3. Before applying you should refer to www.cao.ie/mature and view the information for mature applicants on HEI websites. In particular, you should note HEI requirements for the provision of supplementary application information. If you have any questions, you must contact the Admissions Office or mature students officer of the appropriate HEIs well in advance of closing dates.

  4. If you are applying for entry to primary teaching on the basis of mature years, you must apply for these courses through CAO by 1st February 2018 at 5:15 pm.
