Dublin City University has developed a national and international reputation as a dynamic, innovative, open and inclusive learning environment, which encourages students with different backgrounds, nationalities and age profiles.
In the 30 years since its establishment, DCU has developed strong relationships with employers and the business community, and is now known as a University of Enterprise.
As a result our graduates are highly sought after by employers in Ireland and abroad, who describe them as being rounded, dynamic people who ‘hit the ground running’.
The courses offered by our university are relevant to the working world, and have been developed specifically to produce well-rounded graduates who are adaptable and flexible, who are aware of societal issues and who can take their place as effective global citizens.
DCU is a community of approximately 11,000 students, who are actively encouraged to take part in the full range of college services, supports and activities.
The university sports centre with a 25m swimming pool, climbing wall, aerobics studio, and squash courts is particularly popular.
Students also can avail of a wide range of classes, fitness assessments, training schedules and personalised programmes.
The university is offering nine programmes under the Springboard programme, and of these, six are held on the DCU campus.
However, classes on the Business Innovation Programme will be held in the DCU Ryan Academy, and classes on the Diploma in Information Technology and the BSc in Information Technology are taught through distance education.
