EU Applicants

We welcome EU Applicants with high-school qualifications from a European Union or European Free Trade Association country. If you're an EU national or a non-EU national living in the EU and want to enter a DkIT course at 1st year level, you must apply in the standard way through the CAO. 

Applications from citizens of the EU are made through the Central Applications Office (CAO). The CAO process applications for undergraduate courses in Irish Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).
