If you are applying to college through the CAO did you know that students with type 1 diabetes can apply for the Disability Access Route to Education (DARE) admissions scheme?
It offers college places on a reduced points basis. When you fill out your CAO application online, you have the opportunity to indicate that you wish to have your condition taken into account. Ticking this box automatically redirects you to the online DARE application form (see www.accesscollege.ie/dare).
Please note, ticking the box does not mean you will automatically qualify for the scheme.
DARE are holding information days at colleges across Ireland this Saturday the 10th of January, 2015. For more information please see the booklet below or contact the DARE office at the college you are applying to.
