Advice for students on third level applications
BRAY’S YouthSpin group reminds sixth year pupils that after the Christmas holidays they will be preparing to complete their CAO forms for college.
There will be a number of open days coming up and YouthSpin offers a service to young people and their families that can help with the application process or more general careers or educational information .
January will be an important month for those students with a couple of CAO milestones approaching as well as opportunities to visit a number of the further or higher education institutions they might be considering applying for.
January 20 is the closing date for anyone wishing to apply early to CAO through their online process, which carried a reduced fee of €25.
February 1 is the traditional final date for normal applications with a fee of €40. Go to youthspin.wordpress.com for a list of open days coming up in the area. Youth information officer Paul Murphy will be at the Bray office on Herbert Road on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or other times by appointment.
