Applying to UL

Please note that all applications for September 2018 are now closed.

There are 2 application routes to our UL programmes for EU students (or students with EU residency). Most prospective students to UL make their application through the Central Applications Office (CAO), however some courses require students to apply directly to UL through the Admissions Office. The two applications routes and their relevant programmes are outlined below.

Please note that non-EU students are required to apply directly to the International Education Division. To determine your Fees status please click on the relevant flowchart below;
