Disability & Learning Support Service


Promoting Equality of Access and Opportunities to Higher Education

for Learners with Disabilities


The DCU Disability and Learning Support Service was established with the key objective of promoting equality of access and opportunities in DCU for learners with disabilities, long term medical conditions and/or specific learning difficulties.

The work of the Service is governed by this objective and since its establishment, the university has seen a continuous growth in the number of learners with disabilities studying in DCU and successfully completing their programmes.  

Our website aims to provide future students, current DCU students and staff with information and advice on disability related issues and to outline the relevant assistance and supports available.
