Application form for Internal Transfer Applicants (Transferring within DCU)

Some registered students may find that their chosen programme of study is not suitable for them. There are a small number of transfer places available for some DCU programmes. The application to transfer is a competitive process due to the limited number of places and a transfer is not guaranteed. Please ensure to read the internal transfer form and guidelines in detail, as there are strict application rules and deadlines.

Please note that approval for an internal transfer is subject to the applicant meeting the programme entry requirements, the availability of places on the programme and appropriate Faculty approval. Due to the competitive nature of transfers, applications will be assessed on a first-come-first-served basis. Please continue in your current programme until you have been officially notified of the outcome of your application.
