There’s nothing like hearing from a current student to help you understand which course is best for you! In these sessions, students talk about their courses, tell you more about what it’s like to be a DCU student and the types of student activities they get involved in.

The Career Focus session brings together professional staff from DCU Alumni and Careers offices and DCU graduates to talk about how a DCU degree prepares you for the workforce, and you’ll get a flavour of the types of career paths our graduates can follow.
