CAO have released their Round Two offers which are now available for candidates and have to be replied to by tomorrow’s 3.00pm deadline (22nd September, 2021).

4,135 offers have been issued by CAO to applicants in Round Two of the CAO offers process.

CAO communications officer, Eileen Keleghan, said “Many of the applicants receiving a second round offer today may have already accepted an offer in Round One, and it is important that they take the time to decide between these courses and inform CAO before the reply date of this Wednesday, 22 September at 3pm if they wish to accept the new offer. Accepting the new offer will automatically cancel a previous acceptance.

“If this is an applicant’s first offer, they can choose to accept this offer and this will not prevent them from receiving a higher preference course in a later offer round if they are deemed eligible. It is important to note, however, that the majority of offers have been issued at this stage and this may be the only offer that they will receive.

For those who have been unsuccessful in receiving an offer (or their desired offer) there are many options, including further education courses which offer qualifications in their own right as well as opportunities to progress to third-level; apprenticeship schemes; reapplying through CAO next year; or repeating the Leaving Certificate. The Available Places facility also has almost 200 courses advertised, and some additional offers will be issued on a weekly basis from today until mid-October”.

Applicants are also reminded that the CAO Available Places facility are open and candidiates can secure a place on a course that may be of interest, both for candidates who have already submitted a CAO application for 2021 or for anyone who is applying for the first time (a €45 fee applies).

Available Places

If Higher Educations Institutions (HEI) have any new courses that open for application after the Change of Mind deadline, or if any places remain unfilled in particular courses after all offers have been made and the waiting lists of applicants meeting minimum entry requirements have been exhausted, such vacancies will be advertised.
