The class of 2020 has faced much uncertainty in this unique year, not least around options for next year. However, there are practical steps students can take to improve their chances of making good, informed, personal choices. Every year a certain number of students drop out of college or do not progress from 1st year. Report from the Higher Education Authority shows that an average of one in six, drop out of their college courses. The main reasons given by students always include choosing the wrong course and/or not having done sufficient research on the course content.
Closing date for late CAO applications is May 1st (5.15 pm). Further applications after this date will not be accepted for 2020 academic year.
