Are you from UK or any EU country or non-eu? Because it’s different for non-EU’s. If non-eu then submit the application at uni’s website. But if eu or from uk you’ll have to make account at CAO and fill the application online and send the attested copies of your GCSEs and A levels certificates by post to CAO office too. Applications for this year entry are closed now but you can prepare for next year.

From the UK (you can say EU, because Ireland regards the UK to be part of the union). Do you study BDS in Ireland. Also, when the degree is complete, can you come back to the UK and work (if so, what's the process?)
By the way, I was told that if you're not a mature student, you won't be applicable for the late application, which ends in May

Thanks

No, I’m not studying there but have applied for medicine. Yes you can come back but you’ll have to give UKMLA and stuff , I’m not sure if requirements are same for dentistry. I guess medicine and bds both can’t be applied in as a late application, late applications have course specifications.

Thank you for your reply

What do you mean by there might be course specifications?

So you're studying Medicine in Ireland?

Thanks for the support

By the way, when you submit your document (grade certificate) by post, what will happen afterwards?
(I've already made a CAO account and posted the certificates)
Also, good luck for your medicine application

Thanks. Nothing until they email you to check in your CAO account. They scan your posted documents and upload it in your accounts qualification section. I just got mine this week.

One more thing, would you know if it's possible for a student to transfer from dentistry to medicine in Ireland
(Just wanted to know)
