CAO Applications

How do I apply? All applications for admission to the first year of Ordinary Degree and ab-initio Honours Degree courses at IADT must be made directly to the CAO.

Closing dates    

Application 1st February 2016
Late application 1st May 2016*
Change of Mind 1st July 2016

Courses in the Department of Design + Visual Arts and the Department of Film + Media are referred to by the CAO as ‘restricted application’ as they have special requirements (portfolio assessment). To ensure that you are considered for these courses, you must follow precisely the CAO instructions. In particular, your application must reach the CAO by 1st February 2016. There is no facility for late applications to the CAO in the case of ‘restricted application’ courses. Therefore, you cannot introduce a restricted application course as a new choice (Change of Mind) after 1st February 2016. However, you can change the order of preference of your course until July 1st.

*Late application deadline only applies to courses which do not require a portfolio submission (Dept. of Technology + Psychology, Dept. of Entrepreneurship and Dept. of Humanities + Arts Management).
