The Teachers Union of Ireland has urged Leaving Certificate students not to despair if they are unhappy with the offer they receive from Central Applications Office tomorrow.

TUI President Gerard Craughwell said that there are alternatives to accessing third level if a student is not offered a university course.

The TUI also said students should treat any offer they do receive as the final one and read all documentation carefully.

Separately, a survey by Myhome.ie has found that finances and exam stress are the biggest concerns facing third level students.

The property website surveyed over 1,500 existing students in recent weeks and found that students are generally confident about their future employment prospects.

However 70% of those asked said they would consider moving abroad after their studies, while 13% said this was not an option.

The survey also found that rent in Dublin is higher, costing up to €500 a month compared to €400 a month in Cork or Galway.
