Not too sure what way it works tbh, I think to qualify for BTEA you need to be on job seekers allowance for 12 months, that's why I can't get a job. You should qualify for a grant though so I'm sure you will be ok. There is a website, I think it's called studentfinance.ie that has lots of info about it. When is your interview?

I think you should hear by the end of May and the offer will come from the CAO in early July.

Good luck everyone.

I assume so Captain. I applied to a different IT as a mature student last year and didn't get on the course but they still sent me a letter to say I hadn't got on and why, which was helpful .

I received 2 letters today, both in reference to the 2 courses I applied for there. They're near identical and both start with "thank you for choosing xxx......" and end with "I wish you well with your career and look forward to welcoming you to the Institute"

Is this an acceptance letter?

Mmmm - that's odd. Could be just an admin error but with both letters ending in ...... welcoming you to the institute, it sounds good news to me. But I'd ring on Monday and just ask and they'll clear it up for you.

You might be successfull for both courses, the one you get depends on the order you put them in the CAO system.

When interviewed you were probably interviewed against all your CAO choices.

Just make sure you have the courses in the correct order in the CAO as you will only be offered your highest successful course at L7 and your highest course at L8.

Ah, they were both in the same vein so that might explain it. I'm gonna give a ring next week just to clarify.
