At Dublin City University (DCU), select from a range of academic offerings in more than 80 program areas. Take courses within your major, or choose courses from the subject areas for which DCU is best known, such as science, technology, engineering, business, and humanities. With so many courses to choose from, the sky's the limit! Immerse into Irish student life as you attend class with local, European, and other international students on this integrated campus.
Each semester, you'll enroll in courses that total up to 30 DCU credits/18 U.S. credits. Typically, you'll enroll in 4-6 courses per semester. Contact hours and meeting times vary; courses may be structured as seminars, lectures, or tutorials. You may earn a total of 18 credits (up to 270 contact hours) per semester and 36 credits (up to 540 contact hours) per academic year.
You'll "pre-register" by submitting course selections and alternates to CEA before you leave for Dublin. Formal registration takes place at a registration session during the first week of the program. When making selections, indicate only the disciplines in which you wish to take courses, although you should indicate any courses you are required to take while studying abroad and any major requirements you wish to fulfill.
It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
Known for research in biotechnology, electric engineering, chemistry, and physics, Dublin City University is set on a modern, 85-acre campus just north of the city center. The campus offers the social and cultural benefits of city life, and the security and vibrancy of a modern campus, which makes DCU a vibrant, attractive place to study.
When you study abroad in Dublin, you can choose standard CEA housing—in a student residence apartment or homestay—or arrange your own independent housing. Assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.
Life-Long Benefits I made friends I will have for the rest of my life. I learned a lot about not only France, but who I am and what I am capable of. Everybody should have the chance to study abroad because there are so many benefits.
