Through the CAO’s Available Places scheme, prospective students still have the opportunity to apply for one of five undergraduate courses at WIT

Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) has added five courses to the CAO’s ‘available places’ places for 2017 entry.

The scheme is open to people who have not already applied to the CAO, as well as existing applicants.

Dr Derek O’Byrne, Registrar and Vice President for Academic Affairs at WIT says while there are many reasons people may apply for a course through available places, preparation is key before applying for a course through the scheme.

“At www.wit.ie/how we have a How to research your CAO options resource for CAO applicants as well as College choices – the parents’ manual. We recommend people use the worksheets there to figure out if one of the available places courses is for them and it’s something they will enjoy studying for the next three to four years.”

Through the CAO’s Available Places scheme, prospective students still have the opportunity to apply for one of five undergraduate courses at WIT.

WD096 BSc in Horticulture (Kildalton College)

WD168 BSc (Hons) in Entertainment Systems

WD171 BEng (Hons) in Sustainable Energy Engineering

WD197 BSc (Hons) in the Internet of Things

WD180 BSc (Hons) in Physics for Modern Technology

There are many reasons prospective students turn to the CAO’s available places list each year, adds Dr O’Byrne. “For some it is because they did better than they hoped and hadn’t that course on their list. Others may be disappointed with their offer and look for something they are better suited to. With the worsening accommodation crisis it may be that some families decide that Waterford is a more affordable option, or gives a student the freedom to commute a reasonable distance.”
