Finally: New College Website Makes CAO Process 5000x Easier

Finally: New College Website Makes CAO Process 5000x Easier

It's been a long time coming but finally, Irish college students have a place where they can easily find out information on university courses -

According to the Irish Times, the site has received 20,000 hits in its first days, which of course, duh... we are desperate for this.

Advertisement is a interactive search tool that helps applicants easily access detailed information about college courses.

Founders Alan O’Beirne, Niall Cronin, Walter Holohan and Kenneth Casey said students are sick of the frustration of finding a suitable course.

“A problem in education at the moment is the lack of a transparent, centralised and user-friendly platform for students or parents to access course information easily. Dropout levels are quite high as a result of poor course selection, one of the reasons behind the selection issue is lack of easy access to information,” O’Beirne told IT.

If you want to go to college, you can search, explore and compare college courses on your phone, tablet and desktop.

The closing date for 2017 CAO applications is 5.15pm on February 1st so if you want to be in a course next year, you gotta choose now.

Let us know what you think of the new site in the comments.
