Access to the Workplace Students

A very warm welcome to DCU’s Access Service, the home of Ireland’s largest and first university-based Access Programme.

Here at DCU, we have a strong tradition of creating equal access to third-level education for students from under-represented groups in higher education.

DCU Access has created a 'life cycle of engagement' between the university and our Access students, starting from primary school and continuing through graduation.



For any questions or general queries, please get in touch with access@dcu.ie. If you are a current access student, please contact your support officer.

Access Orientation

A compulsory 1st year Access Orientation programme for all successful HEAR applicants will be held in September 2024.


Location and Times will be confirmed at a later date.
