Erasmus+ & exchange programmes: where to go

Covid-19: this year’s programmes are cancelled

DCU decided, with regret, to cancel the Erasmus year abroad and outgoing student mobility for the full academic year 2020-21 for degree programmes with a structured year abroad.

The university took this decision having considered the varying public health advice in different host countries, the current travel restrictions nationally and internationally, and the uncertainty as to when such restrictions will be lifted.

A world of opportunity

DCU International Office

Michael Mullarkey, B.Sc. Environmental Science And Technology, studied at the University of Wollongong in Australia

Under more usual circumstances, DCU students can choose to study abroad in over 200 universities and educational institutions in more than 30 countries. As a DCU student, you can spend a semester or a year abroad wherever there is an agreement with another university in your subject. 

“I was an Erasmus student who did my year abroad in Berlin for the year. It was so great to be submerged in a different culture and way of living. It was amazing to see how classes and learning situation were done in Berlin. The year abroad opened my eyes to a new way of living. It was one of the best decisions ever and I am so delighted I took part in it.” 

Niamh Cullen, studied for a BA in Economics, Politics & Law at DCU and went on Erasmus+ to Hochschule fur Wirtschaft und Recht Berlin
