HPAT – Ireland is available to any candidate who is applying to study a course for which HPAT – Ireland is a prerequisite, and who is capable of meeting the academic entry requirements set by the universities. Applicants must either be in their final year of school or have completed their Leaving Certificate prior to 2020. Please note that international / non-EU students may be exempt from taking HPAT – Ireland. For further details contact the universities to which you intend to apply or refer to their websites.

Notice to 5th Year Students:

Please be warned that when all candidates register to sit HPAT-Ireland they will be required to check a box declaring that they are either completing 6th Year in 2020 or have already completed it, or its equivalent, prior to 2020. They will also have to declare that they are a bona fide student. A 5th Year student is NOT a bona fide student.

If ACER is made aware of a student who provides a false declaration, their registration and results will be cancelled.
