Information for applicants


Information for students applying to study in 2021

As you start your new year at school you may be already thinking ahead and planning what to do after Year 12 or Year 14. Our team of Education Advisers would normally be out and about in schools and attending careers information events meeting students but with Covid-19 restrictions in place schedules have changed.

CAFRE continues to respond to the developing COVID-19 situation in line with the Public Health Agency (PHA) and the Northern Ireland Executive guidelines. We have welcomed a new intake of students to CAFRE in the past couple of weeks and our continuing students are also back at their studies.

We don’t want you to miss out on the opportunity to discover CAFRE and all the great things we can offer you. We would be delighted to chat with you about your study choices, student life at CAFRE, how to apply, finance and much more.

If you have a query about any of our courses please contact us by email initially. In your email please tell us what Year you are in at school, what subject area you are interested in and provide us with a contact mobile phone number. One of our Education Advisers will then get in touch with you/your parents for a video or telephone chat to talk through options available to you at CAFRE. Please send your email to: 

Our application process for courses opens on 1st October 2020 for September 2021 entry. If you are interested in studying on a Level 2 or Level 3 Certificate or Diploma course after GCSEs or on a part-time degree programme you apply online.

Applications for Honours and Foundation Degree courses should be made through UCAS. For further information on Honours and Foundation Degree courses click HERE.
