The application process can vary depending on the programme for which you are applying. Some may require interviews whereas others might ask for higher qualifications or work experience. Before making an application, we would encourage you to first review our programme Entry Requirements to see if you are eligible for the programme.
We are open for the 2018/19 student intake and accepting applications from October 1st 2017. We receive a large volume of applications for our courses and as a result we review applications and offer places on an ongoing rolling basis. Many of our courses fill in advance of September each year so our advice is to apply as early as possible for 2018/19. Some key deadline dates to ensure you get your application in by are December 15th 2017 and March 15th 2018.
Step 1: Collating Documentation
The first step is to collate the required documentation needed to assess your application*.
These can include but are not limited to:
Your full, official transcripts. Please note we require official documentation. If you have not completed your undergraduate degree, please send us the most up-to- date version of all years studied so far.
Please include an updated CV detailing all relevant work experience and extra-curricular activity. It is useful to demonstrate leadership skills.
If English is not your first language, an English language qualification is required for admission to all of our programmes. The exception to this rule is if you have completed your primary degree or an entire third level qualification through English, in an English speaking country. For more information visit our English Language Requirements Page
Two references are generally required, preferably one academic and one professional.
Feel free to send us other information that you believe will help your application.
Step 2: The Application Process
Once you have collated the required documentation and reviewed the entry requirements for your programme of interest, you can now apply online.
You must apply online using our dedicated student information portal. You will be required to enter contact details, upload your documents and answer two essay questions (each approximately 300 words). We would ask that you seriously consider both essays and answer these in the context of the programme you are applying to. Try to not replicate your CV and demonstrate what makes you different from other applicants. There are no right or wrong ways to complete these essays.
You will then be asked to submit your application and pay the €50 application fee. No application can be assessed until the fee has been paid. You can apply for multiple programmes with the one application fee, but please be sure to mark your preferred course.
Once submitted, it can take 2-3 weeks before a decision is made depending on the time of year and how complete your application is. We may offer you a conditional place based on the completion of a number of criteria, such as degree, English test, or another qualification. This reserves you a place on the course and once you have fulfilled this criteria we will issue you a full offer.
Acceptance is completed by paying a non-refundable deposit (€500 - €1000). Once you have accepted you will then be handled by the programme office who will contact you with further course and start details.
