CAO Change of Mind facility openCAO applicants wishing to make changes to their course choices can do so from noon today (4 May) using the Change of Mind facility.
The CAO Change of Mind facility can be accessed via the ‘My Application’ section at www.cao.ie up to 1 July at 5:15pm. This facility is free of charge and can be used as many times as is required.
Mature applicants, and applicants considering introducing a restricted course to their application, should take note of the restrictions before using the Change of Mind facility.
Speaking about the Change of Mind process CAO communications officer, Eileen Keleghan, suggested applicants should think carefully about any changes that they make.
“The Change of Mind facility is available up to 1 July at 5:15pm, and applicants should use this time to thoroughly research courses, taking special care to check the minimum entry requirements and course content.
“Applicants need to be careful not to make last minute changes to an application based on assumptions about what the points will be, or how well they feel that they have done in their exams. The best advice that we can give applicants is to place their course choices in genuine order of preference.
“CAO applicants should take care when entering their course codes and make sure to check that courses are listed in the correct order by logging in using the ‘My Application’ facility before the ‘Change of Mind’ deadline” she added.
When logging in to make changes, applicants will see their existing Level 8 or Level 7/6 list and a ‘New courses’ list. If an applicant chooses to add, remove or change the order of their courses on either list they must insert all course codes in the correct order on the new list.
For more information about the ‘Change of Mind’ process, and the restrictions that apply, visit the CAO website or view the CAO Handbook.
1. There is no plan
Make decisions for fundamental, not instrumental reasons.
2. Think strengths, not weaknesses.
What do you do consistently well? What gives you energy rather than drains you?
3. It's not about you.
The most successful people improve their own lives by improving others' lives.
4. Persistence trumps talent.
There are massive returns to doggedness.
5. Make excellent mistakes.
Commit errors from which the benefits of what you've learned exceed the costs of the screw-up.
6. Leave an imprint.
Recognize that your life isn't infinite and that you should use your limited time here to do something that matters.

Data Science involves the study of information—where it comes from and the patterns it forms—and
how to turn this data into a resource for business, government and social strategies. Data Scientists are investigators, story-tellers and problem-solvers who organise information, find unique ways to communicate its salient points, and think of creative ways to apply it to real world situations.
As a DCU Data Science undergrad, you’ll learn theory in mathematics, statistics, programming, cloud technologies and machine learning. Your qualification will be highly marketable, with global demand across numerous sectors
