DCU International Office
The last year that I have spent here as a student has been fantastic for a whole host of reasons. The ultimate aim of any college education is obviously to get a degree at the end and I’ve found that DCU is a great place to study, not least because it’s a university that makes you want to learn. The professors and lecturers are all experts in their fields, which means they have a passion for their subjects that is infectious.

I have seen firsthand the entertainment, friendliness, support and inspiration that DCU has to offer. From what I’ve experienced here, I can’t recommend it highly enough as a place to study.”
