About the DCU Engage Student Award

 Your university journey is about more than getting a degree.


At DCU, there are lots of opportunities to develop valuable skills for life, outside of your course curriculum. That’s why the DCU Engage Student Award was created - to recognise and reward student extracurricular engagement and achievement.

Our award is endorsed by IBEC & is recognised by Ireland’s top employers. It allows graduates to highlight the additional skills that they have developed at University and is a great way to enhance your CV!

There are 3 levels of the award – Bronze, Silver & Gold (Uaneen). You can start at any level but we recommend starting at Bronze in First Year & building towards the final award.
