UCAS action needed …

To all UCAS applicants – Today is A level results day in the UK so if you wish to avail of Clearing it is important to act promptly and calmly.   See information in our previous blogs, emails  and on UCAS track.   It may be important to send your results to colleges and also to get on the phone to other colleges if you are eligible for Clearing.    Remember to have information to hand including any reasons which might explain a drop in results – colleges will sometimes be persuaded to take a student who has ‘under-performed’ if you can present a good case.  For example that you are asking for a re-check or that past history shows you are usually at the level required.  They are very busy today so it pays to be well prepared with personal statement and all relevant exam history to hand so you can argue your case and also see if a course might be best for you as well.

UCD Ad Astra deadline

I would like to remind you that the closing date for the Ad Astra Academic Scholarship is drawing near (20th August 2018) and that there may be exceptional pupils in your school who should apply. Each year, we offer up to fifteen scholarships for incoming academic students to the Academy.

Our Academy provides a nurturing infrastructure for students who show exceptional potential in academic pursuits, sports or the performing arts. This includes a €3,000 scholarship that can be used to offset fee’s, accommodation or used as a bursary; guaranteed on campus accommodation; an academic mentor in their area of study; access to the scholars room; team building events and more!

To be eligible for the Academic Scholarship, prospective students must receive 6 H1’s (or it’s equivalent) in their leaving certificate in any subjects and must complete an online application by clicking here or via the Ad Astra Academy website before Monday, 20th August 2018. The online application consists of a personal statement and a statement of achievement called ‘beyond the classroom’. Eligible applications for shortlisting will be scored only on the basis of their application form, weighting of 60% statement of achievement and 40% personal statement.

Please note that the Elite Sports and Performing Arts strand applications closed in January for this Septembers intake. They will re-open on 1st November and close 31st January 2019 for next year’s intake.

Unfortunately, no late applications are accepted.

A panel will review and invite shortlisted candidates for interview to UCD on 29th August 2018.

Successful candidates will be notified before the start of term time. If a student meets the academic criteria but has not submitted an application they will not be eligible. If a student does not receive 6 H1s but is considering getting a subject rechecked, they can still apply before 20th August 2018. If in October, their grades change, the panel will review the students application and they may be invited for interview and offered a place in the Academy.

You can find the most up-to-date information on the Ad Astra Academy on the Ad Astra Academy website, which includes an FAQ. Further information can also be made by contacting us at the details below.
