A possible British exit from the EU-due to the fall in demand among students from Northern Ireland and the UK is probably a factor in some significant drops in CAO points required for entry to Trinity College Dublin.

The country’s oldest University, established by Royal decree in 1592, has a proud tradition of attracting a significant number of students in the UK, especially from the North.

But this year was a big dent in demand, with a 20pc drop in applications from abroad – from 958 to 763 – how 11pc drop in figures for the UK, from 552 until 624.

While there is no official explanation for the trend, Trinity acknowledged in a statement that a British exit from the EU has influenced the choice of the course and applications.

Aggregate demand for two-subject course art was 16pc, and it is likely that students in the UK contributed to this.

Uncertainty is created the UK out of the EU in the UK and less favourable sterling-Euro exchange rate is likely to be weighing on the minds of students and their parents.

Traditionally, the law has been a popular choice for Northern Irish students in Trinity. While the total number of CAO applications for law this year, at least two courses of the Trinity in big lose points right from 542 to 533, and the law and the business went from 589 to 577.
