Enrolling with the University

What to do once you have received an offer to come to DCU…

  1. Accept your offer of a place in the programme by filling out the ‘Acceptance/Rejection’ form (for undergraduate students) or replying to PAC via e-mail (for postgraduate students).
  2. Pay the full tuition fee to DCU and keep copies of all payments made. The methods of payments are outlined in a document in this mailing.
  3. Contact DCU for a ‘Visa Letter’, which will be needed in order to apply for a Study Visa for Ireland. Students should contact international.office@dcu.ie; The Visa Letter cannot be issued by DCU until the full tuition fees have been received.
  4. Contact your nearest Irish Embassy or Consulate for information regarding applying for a Study Visa to study in Ireland and check out http://www.inis.gov.ie/en/INIS/Pages/WP07000111
  5. Please ensure to allow adequate time for the visa application process – it can take between 6 weeks and 3 months, depending on the time of the year.
