Access Programme

The three main aims of the DCU Access Service are:

1. To encourage all the students they work with to see DCU and third-level education as a potential option for them.. 

2. To increase the number and diversity of students from the University’s target communities entering third level.

3. To support access to students completing their programme of study.

The Access Service achieves these aims through its outreach programme in communities and Second level schools in North Dublin. They also have an extensive Post-Entry Supports Programme for students who have entered DCU as an Access Student. Supports include; financial, academic, professional, and personal support including one-to-one meetings and an Orientation Programme. If you wish to find out more about the Access Service, you can contact Cathy McLoughlin who is the Head of the Access Service.
