We are aware that this year has brought about a lot of uncertainty about the Leaving Cert, college places and interview processes.
As it is now coming into June and the Covid situation continues, we have decided to offer a very straight forward process for getting an offer of a place in Dunboyne College in 2020.
From today if you complete our online application form and upload a 100 to 200-word statement titled: "Why I have chosen this course, and why I am suitable for this course" on our website you maybe eligible for an offer.
If you upload it by Friday of any week, and you are eligible, you will get an offer letter the following week.
We advise you to do this at your earliest convenience to secure an offer as courses fill on a first come first serve basis, and some of the more popular courses do fill up early in the summer.
You can always opt out up to the end of September if you get a third level offer or you change your mind.
Our students are very successful in accessing the thousands of third level offers available to PLC graduates. In fact, over 90% of our students who complete the year with us, with at least 8 successful modules, get a third level offer. It often represents a much better option than repeating the Leaving Cert as you can study nursing, computers, psychology, science etc, or whatever your passion is on a full time basis. We have over 50 courses on offer.
By clicking the 'Apply Now' button on our website, students will be directed to an application form, which they must fill in. Students must then upload their personal statement.
We realise it can be difficult to get references etc during this time so we will only require these documents for final registration which should be completed by 14th August along with your course fees. You can upload any of the following documents that are outstanding when completing your registration online:
- Personal Statement – how to write a personal statement can be found below;
- A recent Photograph of yourself;
- Most Recent Exam Results (Mock Exam or 5th year or Junior Cert results);
- A Written Reference (from school, employer, etc.).

We wish you well as you enter the summer and look at the next stage of your educational journey.
We do hope that is with us.
