Transition Year Open Day 2021

27th April 2021 9.30am-1.30pm

Virtual Open Day 

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


Although you cannot physically take a campus tour to visit some of the places you might be in a couple of years, we have lots of recorded campus tours available and you can view them HERE

Throughout the day you can chat to DCU students and staff – they would love to answer any question you may have.
