GDILS Application

Graduate Dip in Inclusive Ed. Learning Support and Special Ed. Application Form

The process of application for the 2021-22 Academic Year is likely to begin in late January/early February 2021, with the publication of a DES circular inviting applications. You should ask your principal to alert you when this arrives in the school. Also, you should keep an eye on the relevant section of the DES website.

In the meantime, it might be instructive for potential applicants to look at this year's circular, in relation to eligibility criteria, etc. This can be accessed here: DES Circular 0008/2020.

Finally, lots of general information is also available on our Course Information Page.

Once the relevant circular issues from the DES, applications to DCU can only be made electronically via an online link that will be listed on this page. Please Do Not try to use links from previous years, as applications made via these will not be deemed valid.
