Naturalist?

Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

CAO Application Deadline is Friday 1st Feb

CAO urges applicants to get applications in on time

CAO Application Deadline is Friday 1st Feb

All CAO applicants must submit their CAO application today by Friday 1st Feb at 5:15pm

CAO (Central Applications Office) has been accepting applicants for almost three months now when the application process opened on 5th Novemeber 2018. However, every year many students leave it to the final day to make their last minute application.  “Every year a number of applicants put off making their application until the last couple of hours or even minutes without thinking about the consequences of their browser timing out, their internet connection failing, or encountering payment issues. In order to be fair to all applicants strict deadlines apply and applicants should submit their application in a timely manner,” CAO communications officer, Eileen Keleghan. CAO urges applicants to make their application before deadline closes.



Restricted Applications

The 1st February deadline is especially significant for Mature Students, applicants for the HEAR and/or DARE schemes and those applying for restricted courses. These applications require additional assessments such as interview and/or submission of supporting documentation. Applications cannot be made for these categories beyond the 1st February.

Late Applications

Students who miss the 1st February deadline and who are not making restricted applications can apply for a late application from 5th March until 1st May.  Late applicants may not apply for restricted courses listed in the CAO handbook. The late application fee is €60.
