DCU Postgraduate 2020

There's still time to apply to a DCU postgraduate course at DCU

2020 has been a challenging year with lots of moving parts to consider when approaching postgraduate study. With that in mind, we’ve decided to extend our postgraduate closing date to September 30th for most postgraduate programmes commencing in  the 2020/2021 academic year.
Whether you’ve just finished college, or you’re a professional looking to upskill, pivot or maybe even start your second career, DCU has something for you.

With most of our programmes available either fully online or by hybrid delivery, combining face to face and online study, September 2020 could be your time to start one of our microcredentials, diplomas or Masters programmes.

Join us on September 10th from 1-5pm:

1-3pm: Live Q&A where you’ll be able to ask questions of postgraduate programme chairs and administrative staff.

3-5pm: A series of live discussions on:

  • The employer and DCU alumni perspective on the the career impact of postgraduate study (3-4pm)

  • Balancing study with life commitments such as work, family, high level sports or personal interests (4-5pm)

You’ll also be able to access recorded content on specific courses, reduced fees for alumni and the application process below.
