Mature applicants

I am a Mature applicant, how do I apply for a full-time Year 1 course in CIT?

A mature applicant is one who is over 23 years of age on or before 1st January of the year of application.
There is an additional assessment procedure to determine the eligibility of mature applicants for courses in CIT, however, in the first instance, all mature applicants must apply by 1st February via the CAO for entry to 1st year full-time courses. It is not essential to satisfy minimum requirements. Mature students who apply after 1st February will not be assessed as mature students and will have to satisfy minimum requirements through their Leaving Certificate (or international equivalent) or FETAC points.

The exceptions are:
► Higher Certificate in Business for Mature Students . Apply online at businessformatures
