You need to apply through the Central Applications Office (CAO) for entry into Year 1 of our full-time undergraduate courses.

There are 4 main steps involved in applying to GMIT through the CAO:

  • Research your choices, attend GMIT Open Days, talk to your teachers and family about your course choices
  • Apply to CAO before 1st February for on-time applications
  • Use the "Change of Mind" facility between early May and 1st July to change your preferences if needed, being careful to put the course you really want as your first choice
  • Offers are made by the CAO by post and online in the summer. You must accept the offer within the timeframe listed (normally a week)
