About our Students

We work with students at all levels in DCU, from first year to PhD. We bring employers and students together through our varied range of events; including Employers in Residence information stands, career fairs and skills sessions.

Our focus is particularly on final year and postgraduate students - Irish, EU and international - to increase their employability and help them become work - ready graduates.
