  • Explore the campuses and facilities and get a taste of student life.
  • Attend course information talks to find out more about the degree they would like to study.
  • Meet current students and members of academic staff.
Course Presentations

There are a number of information sessions that will take place on both campuses. DCU offers over 70 undergraduate degree courses in Business, Engineering, Arts, Humanities, Education, Science, Health and Computing. The presentations will cover course content, choices within degrees, the differences between similar degree courses, work placements and career prospects. Each presentation will be 30-45 minutes in duration and will be repeated throughout each day. A full timetable will be available online 3 weeks before the open days.

Parent’s Perspective

Parents play a key role in supporting their son/daughter throughout both their decision-making process and life at university. This advisory session, presented by DCU Student Support and Development, will provide guidance to parents on how they should approach their son/daughter’s path to third-level education. It will examine the costs involved in attending college and also the supports available to students. Furthermore, it will highlight what parents should look out for and how to tackle any issues that may arise.

Student Life at DCU

This talk will be delivered by the Students’ Union and will look at everything your student needs to know on how best to transition into university life. DCU students will discuss student life because going to university means more than just attending classes - it’s also about time-management, increased personal responsibility and social challenges such as making new friends and getting involved in sports, clubs and societies. Our Students’ Union will offer sound advice on successfully making that transition.

Sport and Elite Sport Opportunities in DCU

At DCU we believe in a ‘Sport for All’ philosophy. Why? Because developing as an individual is not just about books and learning and that’s why we:

  • Promote participation in sport
  • Encourage the development of sports clubs
  • Support elite sportspersons
Disability and Learning Support Service

The Disability and Learning Support Service will be hosting an information session on admission routes and supports available for prospective students, parents and guidance counsellors.
