Applications 2022

In response to the Covid-19 crisis, we have amended our CAO application process in two ways:

  1. This year, we will be asking applicants to submit a digital portfolio. 
  2. We will now allocate places on these courses, based solely on the portfolio score, rather than on Leaving Certificate points *.
* Applicants must also have H5 in two subjects, and O6/H7 in four other subjects (the six subjects must include English or Irish).

We have developed a presentation to support Guidance Counsellors & Teachers in advising students whose interests include creativity, making and designing, art and/or digital media.

The presentation details all of the programmes offered at the Crawford and how to apply. The graduate profiles and links to video clips included provide invaluable insights into the creative process from the perspective of Art & Design students.

Note: the file is a comprehensive PowerPoint presentation and is approx 119MB.
