How to read the table

These tables contain all courses currently available for application through the CAO for 2016, including any changes which have been announced since the publication of the CAO handbook 2016. Further changes may occur in the months ahead. Students should keep an eye on the college alert lists, which can be found in the student resource section of the CAO website. Applications can be made for these courses during the change of mind period.

This unique chart gathers together information in a format which is not available in any other single location. Courses are listed by subject area allowing applicants to review easily all the courses relevant to their area of interest. It will also assist applicants in reviewing similar courses which they have not yet considered.

Some courses may appear more than once. This is because they are considered to contain a strong element of two subject areas and students may approach these courses from different perspectives. Other courses may have been included only once, even though they contain elements which could be included in another subject area. However these elements are not the main focus of this course.

It is essential that applicants research all courses in which they are interested. Those who drop out of college in first year most commonly report that their reason for doing so was that the content of the courses was different to what they expected. One must not presume to understand the content of the course from the title or that courses from with the same name in different colleges have the same content.

The table includes both the final points for 2015 as well as the mid points. This allows students to see the minimum points that were needed to be offered a place last year as well as providing an indication of the points other applicants attained by giving the mid-way between the highest and lowest points attained by those who were offered a place.

In some cases there are no points listed as these courses are appearing on the CAO for the first time.
