HEAR scheme

The Higher Education Access Route (HEAR) is a college and university admissions scheme which offers places on reduced points and extra college support to school leavers from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. HEAR has been set up by a number of colleges and universities as evidence shows that socio-economic disadvantage can have a negative effect on how well a student does at school and whether they go on to college. HEAR Applicants must meet a range of financial, social and cultural indicators to be considered for a reduced points place and extra college support. Who is it for? HEAR is for school leavers under the age of 23 as of January 1st 2015, who have completed an Irish Leaving Certificate. CAO alert lists new courses.
