Elite Sportsperson Academic Entry to DCU

Dublin City University has put in place for all its undergraduate degree courses an academic entrance scheme for elite sportspersons. A number of places will be reserved for outstanding candidates who have achieved a very high level of sporting performance, and who are committed to continuing to develop their sporting and academic careers. This is a major new initiative for DCU and builds on the special entrance scheme in place over the past few years in the BSc (Hon) in Sport Science and Health and the BSc (Hons) in Athletic Therapy and Training.

The Elite Sportsperson Academic Entry Form is now available to submit online. The deadline is 1st May 2016. Submit your application here

Please note this scheme is co-coordinated by Registry. The offer of an academic place at DCU through the Elite Sportspersons Academic Entry Scheme does not automatically include the offer of a Sport Scholarship Award. Applicants who wish to apply for a sport scholarship need to apply to the "Elite Athlete Development Programme".
