Dublin City University (DCU) is Ireland’s university of Enterprise. Situated on an 85 acre active and rewarding campus, which is full of student life, sports and leisure facilities, DCU has grown rapidly in scale and performance since being established as a university in 1989.
With the city just a 10-minute bus drive away, students of DCU have the best of both worlds; the social and cultural benefits of city life, but with the security and vibrancy of a university campus built very much for today. DCU prides itself on delivering excellence across all of its activities.
DCU, with a student population of almost 11,500 and close to 2,000 non-Irish students from 116 different countries, is recognised as centre of academic excellence in education and research.
The university is young, vibrant and voted as Sunday Times University of the Year 2010. Unconventional by nature, DCU broke with the traditional mould and introduced new approaches into the Irish education system. With a focus on enterprise and a determination to hold the position as Ireland’s most innovative and market driven university, DCU has created a unique position for itself in Ireland.
