Elite Athlete Entry Scheme

The Elite Athlete Entry Scheme application process is now closed. The deadline was 1st May 2017.

The Institute has put in place for all its undergraduate programmes an academic entrance scheme for elite sportspersons. Through this scheme the Institute awards additional CAO points for entry to full-time undergraduate courses and successful applicants will be offered up to a maximum of 10% or 45 additional CAO points for admission to all undergraduate programmes.

A limited number of places will be reserved for outstanding candidates who have achieved a very high level of sporting performance and who have identifiable potential for improvement. Successful applicants who commit to represent the Institute in their chosen sport will also be offered access to a range of athlete-led support services such as strength and conditioning and nutritional support, performance development and PR workshops and access to quality training facilities.

Applications for the Elite Athlete Entry Scheme are now closed. The deadline for receipt of applications was Monday 1st May 2017. 

The offer of an academic place at DIT through the Elite Athlete Entry Scheme does not automatically include the award of financial assistance and/or the offer of a place on the Elite Entry Support Programme. Applicants who wish to apply for a place on the Elite Entry Support Programme
