Simple 5 Step Process
We make it as simple as possible. You complete one application form to participate in the program and we use this to apply to whatever number of schools you have a stated preference for and that we think will be interested in you.
To make an application you need:
When you have been accepted for the program you will be required to provide:
Who should apply?
What do I need to apply?
When should I apply?
We continue to accept applications as long as there are suitable vacancies – usually through the month of August. However you should remember that there are limited vacancies in all schools – and there are more Standard Schools than Elite Schools, and more Elite Schools than Boarding Schools.
We strongly recommend that you are guided by these dates:
Boarding Schools: September Start: Apply by early April
Elite Schools: September Start: Apply by early May / January Start: Apply by early October
Standard Schools: September Start: Apply by early May / January Start: Apply by early October
Of course the earlier you apply the more choice you may have.
Can I graduate from an Irish Secondary School?
Yes – if you pass the Leaving Certificate in the final year. You will normally need to spend two years in an Irish school before taking this examination.
If your grades in the Leaving Certificate are good enough you can then apply for entry to the university of your choice (including British universities).
