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