Available Places 2022

A limited number of places are available at ATU Sligo to start an undergraduate programme each September. This is an ideal route for applicants who did not receive a CAO offer, were not happy with the offer they received, or have since changed their mind on what they would like to study.

Available Places for the 2021/2022 academic year is now closed. 


Progression Routes

There are many pathways to the dream career. Many routes will get students to the same end goal, often within the same length of time. Many Level 6 higher certificate and Level 7 bachelor degree programmes can lead students to the exact same Level 8 honours degree. They can graduate within the same length of time and cost, but provide greater flexibility to change paths along the way.
