Application Timeline

For all the Irish universities and colleges, the academic year is divided into two semesters – spring and fall semester. If you are applying for admission for the Fall, which is the September intake, your deadline can be anywhere from February to July. If you are applying for admission for Spring, which begins in January, your deadline is probably between September to October. The entire application process takes a maximum of about 9-10 months if strategically planned. Each university has its own application timelines which may differ between universities.

  • You might set foot quite late, or even fall behind between the processes. But never panic! If you manage to complete all tasks, you can make through the admission process with ease.
  • The best time in applying for a university is always immediately as the application period begins. But keep all your records and documents ready well in advance.
  • Beginning early is the key. The sooner you get your first offer letter, the easier will the remaining process be.


The actual dates may contrast depending on the programme, university, etc. The above table only presents the most generalised impression of the application timeline.
