There is a flier here outlining the AFU Programme.


Participants may choose to register for these modules on a full participation or on an audit basis. 

Full participants will undertake all associated assessments which may consist of some or all examinations, projects, essays and class presentations. Successful completion will earn academic credits and performance will be formally recorded by the University. Such academic credits may contribute to completion of a formal academic award by the University.

All participants will attend all lectures (and seminars/tutorials where these are scheduled) and will have access to all learning materials for the module, including library and online resources.

Full participants will have unrestricted access to the on-campus study supports.

Participants taking the modules on an audit basis will be invited to complete a reflection on the learning gained on their completion of the modules and gain a certificate of participation. 

Scheduling of classes

Most modules involve two hours lectures per week and an associated tutorial for 12 weeks of semester/term.

Here is a map showing each building. 


Full participants €500 per module

Audit only participants €100 per module  (Please note the audit fee has been reduced from last year's fee of €250)

There is an additional mandatory fee of €10 per module to be paid towards the DCU Age Friendly Learners Association, which entitles learners to benefits. Details may be discussed with the Age Friendly coordinator. Please enclose this 10 euro with your module payment.

All  fees should  be paid by bank giro credit transfer by 29th January 2018. 

Here is a REGISTRATION FORM which should be printed, completed and returned with a bank giro payment to the Admissions Office in Registry, Henry Grattan Building, Glasnevin Campus, Dublin City University, Dublin 9, before the commencement of Semester 2 lectures.
Please ensure the form is fully filled in before posting. Final date for payment is 21st September 2017 for Semester 1 modules. (The registry office that receives payments is located opposite the Bank of Ireland in the Henry Grattan buillding.)
