Notification of Acceptance

Most candidates should expect a decision a couple of weeks after the end of our applications deadline, i.e. by mid-July. In some cases, highly qualified candidates are reviewed and offered a place before this date so applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible.

In the case of Non-EU applicants, we are aware that candidates need further lead-time to apply for visas and make arrangements to move to Ireland. Thus, Non-EU applicants are fast-tracked to provide a decision as soon as possible and a limited number of places on the course will be allocated on an ongoing basis. Such applications are typically processed within two weeks of completing the application assuming that all documents including references have been received.
