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 2020
Late application 1st May 2020*
Change of Mind 1st July 2020

Courses that require a portfolio submission (see course pages) 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 2020. 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 2020. However, you can change the order of preference of your course until 1st July 2020.

*Late application deadline only applies to courses that are not 'Restricted Application'.
