How to Apply
Application forms for part-time study are available from January each year and can be obtained from the General Office in either the Rathmines Road or Chatham Row buildings. The closing date for receipt of forms is usually March of each year and auditions normally take place in April for entry the following September. Applications received after the closing date may also be considered if places are available and a second round of auditions is usually held in early September to facilitate these candidates.
