DCU Merit Scholarships

DCU offers partial merit-based scholarships to some international students. When you apply as an international student to study at DCU, we automatically consider you for a scholarship. We’ll let you know if you have qualified for a scholarship when we contact you to advise if your application to study at DCU has been successful. Certain conditions apply.

In order to help you determine the fee status that may apply to you we have developed a quick guide.  This is is not a definitive decision and fee assessments will only be completed following a receipt of a full offer to a DCU programme.
