When completing the online application form, 3 geographic locations can be selected, in order of preference. All efforts will be made to ensure candidates receive a place at a centre of their preference, but it is possible some centres will be oversubscribed. In cases where centres are oversubscribed, programme places will be allocated by random lottery. To assist in alleviating costs associated with participation in the programme, including travel costs, all participants will receive a once-off payment of €200.
