TY Open Day

Transition Year Open Day 2019

Transition Year Survey

Can you help DCU give you a better university experience? Completing the Transition Year Survey may just do that!

We are looking for your insights into factors that are important to you in helping you choose where to study when you leave school. We also want to make sure that the DCU open days get better each year and your feedback can help us to provide the best experience possible for future students.

The form will take less than 5 minutes, and there are only two questions that we ask you for your personal opinion on (and you dont even have to answer these). The rest of the questions are just ticking boxes.  

There will be a draw for a DCU hoodie from those forms that are completed by end of May (five hoodies available).

Thank you in advance for your participation!


30th April 2019 9.30am-2.30pm

Transition year, it’s a chance to find out what interests you, what excites you and what inspires you. Above all, it’s a chance to explore. Our TY Open Day will give you a brief introduction to the courses offered in DCU presented by DCU students. Some of the topics that will be covered include:

• What’s it really like being a student in DCU

• Where will this course take me

• How many hours are spent in lectures and tutorials

• What’s an assignment

• How will I manage study and have a good time

• Aiming high and what to do to get there

There will also be representatives from HEAR, DARE, Academic and Sport Scholarships giving you the chance to find out alternative admission routes to DCU. We will let you know about the benefits of getting involved in Club and Society life – the heart and soul of DCU!

You can take a campus tour to visit some of the places you might be in a couple of years and throughout the day you can chat to DCU students and staff – they would love to answer any question you may have.
