What type of registrant am I?

New Graduates - Section 38 Applicants


This second route to registration is for:

  • new entrants to the professions in Ireland;
  • graduates;
  • those who have been practising abroad; or
  • those returning to the profession.

If you fall into one of these categories, in order to register you must:

  • hold an approved qualification;
  • complete the online application form;
  • demonstrate that you are fit and proper to practise the profession; and
  • satisfy the Board that you have sufficient knowledge of the language necessary to practise the profession in Ireland - this may include undertaking a language test.

New entrants with qualifications from abroad must first have their qualifications recognised by CORU before they are eligible to apply for registration.
