​Strong Increase in Demand for LIT’s CAO Programmes

LIT is experiencing an increase in demand for the majority of its CAO programmes across all areas, with substantial points increases in Built Environment, Science, Engineering and Creative programmes.

Interim President of LIT, Terry Twomey says, “This year, we are seeing an increase in demand for programmes which is reflective of the ongoing recovery in the economy. “The trend is particularly pronounced at our Department of the Built Environment, where points have increased for all honours degree programmes.

For example, our honours degree in Quantity Surveying is up by 60 points this year, and Property Valuation and Management is up by 35 points.

“Demand is also particularly strong for Science and Engineering related programmes. Applied Biology, Mechanical Eng​ineering, Electronic Engineering, as well as Video and Sound Technology are among the most popular programmes for the class of 2016.

“Game Art and Design, and our Art and Design programme are also showing strong increases in points, reflecting a continued growth of interest in the creative technologies and the arts.

“Against this backdrop, LIT is attempting to meet demand for CAO programmes by offering access by Direct Entry, an option that is proving very popular with Leaving Cert students. I’d encourage students to get in touch with us here in LIT and to check out cao.lit.ie for information on other course options and to apply.”​​
