How does the CAO Available Places process work?

Basically, the Available Places process does what it says on the tin. Every course has a number of places on it and if they weren't filled up via the first round CAO offers - then they are distributed through the Available Places process. Anyone can apply for an available place - points don't matter but you do have to have the 'minimum requirements' for the course you want to study.

If you've already applied to through the CAO - then all you need to do is log into your account on Then go to the 'Available Places' tab. Then enter the course codes for the course you would like to study. Within two weeks you will have an official offer to study the course you have chosen. If you have not already applied through the CAO - it's the exact same process except you'll have to register and pay a fee of €45 to begin the process
