After you have received your results and calculated your points, you will need to wait until the CAO First Round Offers are posted. The dates for 2020 are pending, but the below guidance offers a rough outline of the process.
Round 1 Offers
Students who have opted to be sent an email or SMS message from the CAO will receive a message that they have an offer, they then check which one on “My application” .
Others who did not opt for this can go online to “My application” on the CAO website to check whether they have received an offer.
To access this page the student will need:
- CAO application number (received when they submitted their choices to the CAO)
- Their Date of Birth
- The account password
This short five minute video can help to explain the CAO Offer Process. Additional information is also available on the CareersPortal website.
Please remember that only one offer can be accepted and that this may be a Level 8 or a Level 6/7 offer. The CAO system will not register two acceptances at any one time.
Round 2 Offers
If you did not accept an offer in first round or you are yet to receive an offer, you may be offered a course in the second round.
If you accepted an offer in the first round, but it was not your 1st choice course, you may be offered a course which is higher up your list of preferences in the second round.
An additional deadline will be set for acceptance of offers made through the second round, and you should be mindful of this so you do not miss an opportunity to accept your course place.
