How it works
As the name implies, Available Places lists all third-level courses that are available. A college or university can add new courses or remove them at any time, depending on what’s still available.
Available Places allows you to apply for courses you may not have considered before. It also gives colleges and universities a chance to fill open places before the new semester begins.
The CAO website has a video guide on how to apply. If you are having second thoughts about your CAO choices, or did not apply, it is definitely worth checking out what’s still available.
