Eligibility for HEAR carries forward for one year provided that you:
- apply to CAO by 17:15 on 1 February 2021 and indicate that you wish to apply to the HEAR scheme by 17:15 on 1 March 2021.
- complete ALL relevant sections of the 2021 HEAR application form.
- supply your correct 2020 CAO number under Section 8 of the online HEAR application.
The outcome of your 2020 HEAR application was communicated to you in writing in June 2020. If you applied to CAO in 2020 and you were deemed eligible for HEAR in 2020, then your HEAR eligibility can be carried forward to your application for entry in 2021. You must enter your correct 2020 CAO application number in the box provided. You are required to complete ALL relevant sections of the 2021 HEAR application form; however, you DO NOT need to supply supporting documentation as part of your application. Applicants can contact the CAO helpdesk if they require information about their 2020 HEAR eligibility. In the event of being offered and accepting a HEAR place in 2021, you will be required to provide the original documentation, that is copies of which accompanied your 2020 HEAR application.
