Vetting Expiry Period

DCU vetting remains valid for four years. When a student’s registration extends beyond this period, it is the responsibility of the student to engage with and complete re-vetting.

The following exceptions apply to the four-year vetting expiry period:

  • Bachelor of Early Childhood Education – students are re-vetted after year three.
  • Bachelor of Science in Nursing - General, Mental Health, Intellectual Disability and Children’s and General (Integrated) Nursing are re-vetted after any period of absence during a period of study.
  • Re-vetting is required in instances where a student has advised the University that there are changes to their vetting circumstances since their original vetting status, e.g. convictions or pending cases
