Many students are now eyeing up their CAO options and health science courses are always extremely competitive, which drives minimum points to very high levels. However, there are alternative routes to such courses on the island of Ireland through UCAS, the central application system for applying to UK universities.

There are many opportunities in the UK for Irish students, but particularly in Northern Ireland with over 350 full-time courses available, including many in the health sciences. These are available to students from the Republic with no tuition fees and lower entry requirements than those that would apply for similar courses south of the border.
