Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to register with CAO?

Yes, you need to register with CAO and select TR093 as one of your choices.

Do I need to be a Protestant to study nursing at the Adelaide School of Nursing?

No. There are no religious restrictions to study under TR093. The focus remains on preserving the Adelaide nursing heritage and on improving access for disadvantaged cohorts. These include the financially disadvantaged and also mature nursing applicants for whom there are limited nursing places available

Is there an interview for applicants?

No. However, there is supplementary application form which replaced the interview process. All TR093 applicants are given a link to a supplementary application form and it is on the basis of this evaluation that applicants are nominated to be considered to continue on as TR093 applicants.

Does being ‘Nominated’ guarantee a place at Trinity College?

No. Being ‘Nominated’ means that you continue on the Nursing application process with TR093 as one of your choices, where you will be considered a place on condition that you meet all the other requirements like having enough points on your Leaving Certificate Exams etc.

What does ‘Not Nominated’ mean?

‘Not nominated’ means that you no longer have TR093 as an option on CAO. This does not prevent you from choosing another Nursing Course to study in Trinity College e.g. TR911.

Can I still apply for TR093 after the CAO deadline?

Unfortunately TR093 is a restricted course [more on restricted courses] and is therefore not available after the deadline. This is to facilitate the supplementary application process.

What if I miss the deadline to submit my supplementary application form?

This is a very strict deadline and late applications are not accepted. Applicants are given plenty of time to submit the application form. Once the list of Nominated applications is submitted to TCD, no changes can be made thereof.

What other options do I have if I cannot be considered under TR093?

You can apply to study Nursing in Trinity under other course codes e.g. TR911. You can find a full list of Trinity Nursing courses here.
