Watch our webinar which will give you the information you need to apply as a mature applicant in 2021. Our Access Officer will talk you through the mature application process and provide some useful hints and tips on completing your CAO applications.

Listen to different perspectives from current students and recent graduates who applied via the mature applicant route.

The mature entry route onto these programmes is not managed or administered by the individual third level colleges but instead by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland. Please go to www.nmbi.ie for further details on the mature entry route onto these programmes.
