Transformative Learning

What if you could work towards a world-class Irish University degree from the comfort of your own home, in any place in the world? Online learning with DCU Connected gives you borderless access to all the resources of an established university: an innovative curriculum, renowned teachers and lively exchange with your fellow learners.

What makes us better?

Dublin City University (DCU) has a mission of transforming lives and societies. Accordingly opening access to higher education is deep in our DNA. We have more than 40 years of experience in designing high-quality online distance education. DCU's global reputation for online learning is recognised by our active and longstanding membership of the International Council for Open and Distance Education (ICDE) and we are Ireland's only member of the European Association of Distance Teaching Universities (EADTU).

At DCU we realise that in today's digital society not everyone has the option of undertaking full time, on-campus study. For these students, our aim is to provide flexible access to fully accredited DCU programmes. Our qualifications are highly regarded around the world as DCU is consistently ranked in the top 100 universities under 50 years of age. Not only will you be able to take courses regardless of your location, but you’ll also have opportunities to connect first-hand to an increasingly international network of students. The result is that you will have a globally recognised Irish degree from a top young university providing a unique, 21st Century perspective on some of the major challenges facing the world.
