At The Institute of Education, we aim to make the admissions’ process as smooth and informative as possible.

As you begin your application journey, we encourage prospective students and their parents to attend our open evenings, look through our website, and connect with our Admissions Team, who are always available to answer any questions you may have.
Students applying to our full-time school should have a minimum of 6 Grade C’s at Higher Level Junior Certificate or Merit / Higher Merit / Distinction at Common Level Junior Cycle (or have an expectation of same).
Students are required to have attended a full time education programme in a secondary school for six months immediately prior to applying to The Institute of Education.
Submit Your Application
The first step is to submit an application form. Application forms can be completed and submitted online or can be requested in hard copy by calling the Administration Office (01 6613511) and returned by post.
Application forms must be accompanied by a copy of the Student’s current passport and copies/scans of the following documents:
- Last two formal school reports.
- State exam results AND/OR Mock results (where applicable), OR alternative school assessments on official headed paper.
Once an application form has been received, the student and their parents/guardians will be invited to attend for interview with our Admissions Officer. At the interview, the student’s objectives, motivation and examination results to date will be reviewed and discussed.
Offer of Place
Following interview, places will be offered to successful candidates.
Open evenings are held throughout the year and give parents and prospective students an excellent opportunity to meet staff and learn about all aspects of our school.
We are currently conducting our open evenings via live webinar. This live online event allows students and their parents to see and hear from both our school management team and teachers. A live Q&A forum at the end is also the perfect opportunity to receive answers to any questions you may have.
Prior to commencing full-time study at The Institute of Education all students and their parents/ guardians should familiarise themselves with the school policies below.
