Access Orientation

Students studying

Students entering DCU via the Higher Access Entry Route (HEAR) & Access DCU Entry Route (ADER) must complete an Access orientation programme.


Orientation location and time:

  • DCU Access Orientation takes place in September, prior to the main DCU orientation. Dates for 2024 will be confirmed soon.


What is Orientation?

The key objective of the Access Orientation Programme is to assist students to make the transition into the third-level learning environment. There is an emphasis on making friends, getting to know the DCU campus, DCU Access staff and all the supports the university has to offer.
