13 Fáilte Ón Uachtarán DCU develops well-rounded graduates with enterprising and creative mindsets, who are widely sought after by employers, and who can deliver their own future. Is ollscoil óg, bhisiúil í Ollscoil Chathair Bhaile Átha Cliath a bhfuil ardmhianta aici. Is é ár misean saol daoine agus pobail a athrú ó bhun tríd an oideachas, taighde agus nuálaíocht. Tá dul chun cinn thar na bearta déanta ag OCBÁC ón mbliain 1980 i leith nuair a ghlacamar le mic agus le hiníneacha léinn den chéad uair. Go dtí seo, tá céim bainte amach ó OCBÁC ag 43,000 duine agus tá róil shuntasacha acu in earnálacha éagsúla ar fud an domhain. Sa lá atá inniu ann, tá breis agus 120 clár ag OCBÁC agus 12,000 mac agus iníon léinn i mbun staidéir orthu sna ceithre dhámh Daonnachtaí agus Eolaíochtaí Sóisialta, Eolaíocht agus Sláinte, Innealtóireacht agus Ríomhaireacht, agus Scoil Ghnó Ollscoil Chathair Bhaile Átha Cliath.

17 DCU Life The Big Questions Everyone has questions about university education and time spent on and off campus. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about studying at DCU. Q: Do I really need a third-level qualification? A: The only person who can answer that question is you. People with a third-level qualification typically get jobs faster and make more money than non-graduates. In addition, graduates advance in their careers faster than non-graduates. So, whether you are a school-leaver or considering returning to education, and if you are ambitious about your career, then a third-level qualification is a good idea. You will find more information on employment rates for graduates from the Higher Education Authority (www.hea.ie). It publishes a survey on graduates annually. Apart from laying strong foundations for your future career, a third-level qualification gives you the opportunity to expand your mind in areas that interest you. Increasingly people decide to study simply to fulfil a long-held ambition, and the qualification at the end is a great motivator and an acknowledgement of that achievement. Q: How many undergraduate courses does DCU offer? A: We offer 62 courses in the areas of business and innovation, modern humanities, science and health, engineering and computing, and education studies.the majority of these are full-time courses, for which students are conferred with a primary degree. A small number of the courses are part-time ones or are offered at certificate or diploma level. Q: How long will my course take and where will I do it? A: Most degree courses take four years. There are exceptions, of course. Some courses take three years to complete and our engineering courses give you the option of taking a fifth year for a Masters degree. Many courses include a period of paid work/industrial placement (known as INTRA see page 16), typically for six months in the third year. Students taking language-related degrees spend part or all of their third year studying at a university overseas. The final two years of the Global Business degree are spent at a French, German, Spanish or US third-level institution. Each course is designed to give you the greatest opportunities possible. Q: How is the academic year structured? A: The academic year starts in early September. Orientation for first-year undergraduate students takes place the week before lectures begin. Registration also takes place at this time and students have the opportunity to meet their lecturers, personal tutors and other support staff before lectures begin. You ll also have the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the campus before the majority of the student body returns to college. A provisional academic calendar for the 2013/2014 academic year, available at includes key dates and will give an idea of what to expect. Q: How are the courses structured? A: We use a modular framework. You will typically complete six modules in a semester on an undergraduate course, and 12 in a full year. Q: Will the awarding of my degree be based on passing exams? A: Only partly. DCU also makes extensive use of continuous assessment including project work where appropriate so your efforts throughout the year are rewarded. Q: What if I want to change to another university at some stage during my studies? A: DCU operates a credit system for all undergraduate courses. It may be possible to transfer credits from modules you ve completed to courses at another university. Please see page 39 for full details. Q: How likely am I to get through my first year? A: Obviously that depends partly on how hard you study, but the overall success rate in first-year undergraduate exams is very good. We also do a lot of research into factors influencing student success, which helps us to help our students succeed. Q: Will getting a degree from DCU enhance my employment prospects? A: Students graduating from DCU have an excellent employment record, with many obtaining well-paid employment even before graduation. The most recent post-graduation survey of primary degree graduates (2011 graduates surveyed in March 2012 ) showed that 90% of graduates were in employment, in further study or taking a year out to travel

18 DCU Life Improve Your Employment Potential At DCU we are committed to ensuring that you are provided with industry-relevant degree courses which will help you find meaningful employment upon completion of your degree, should you choose to go straight into the employment market. Employment trends have changed and most graduates find that it is the skills and competencies, rather than purely discipline-specific knowledge, which they have gained during their course that differentiates them from other candidates. The DCU experience prioritises the development of skills and competencies. We offer formal work placement which allows you to experience the workplace as a fullyfledged part of the team. We also offer informal learning opportunities which allow you develop skills such as leadership, adaptability and problem-solving, which are highly sought after in today s workplace. The development of these core skills and competencies can be monitored by you throughout your course on your e-portfolio, an online tool provided to each DCU student upon entry and which you take with you when you graduate as your online CV to showcase your abilities to potential employers. Work Experience INTRA (INtegrated TRAining) Programme At DCU, we are committed to providing courses that are relevant as possible to today s industrial and commercial world. We also think it is important that you get to experience this world for yourself in conjunction with your academic training before you leave DCU. Only then can you fully appreciate what to expect when you graduate. INTRA gives you an opportunity to gain degree-relevant work experience with companies in Ireland and overseas. Over the period of your placement, you will put your academic knowledge to the test in a real working environment that is relevant to your interests. What will you gain from your INTRA experience? The key purpose of your placement is for you to apply your knowledge to real-life working situations, thereby gaining practical skills. But there are several other benefits: You will build up your confidence and develop relationship skills. By applying your knowledge in this environment, you will be able to make realistic and informed career decisions. You might even find that a specialism you hadn t considered is now your preferred direction. You will also generate some very valuable employment contacts. In fact, many DCU graduates gain employment with their INTRA employer. As you begin to see the relationship between your job and your course curriculum, your interest in academic work as well as your motivation will invariably increase too. Finally, in the majority of cases, you are paid for the work you do. The management of the INTRA programme is the responsibility of the INTRA Unit, which is part of the Student Support and Development Department. Close coordination is maintained by the INTRA Programme Coordinators with the relevant programme boards, academic tutors, work supervisors and students. In the unusual event that a placement cannot be found, the student will be given a course-related project. If your course has an INTRA placement, you will be evaluated on it and be required to obtain a satisfactory rating in order to graduate.

19 Graduate Attributes Every DCU graduate is unique. You re here to receive a great education and qualifications but these don t tell the whole story, these don t set you apart. 21st century graduates need more than a great degree, they need to be adaptable, pro-active and the very best version of themselves. The Graduate Attributes programme has been developed by DCU to make sure our graduates have the best chance of finding meaningful work after graduation and staying employable for the rest of their careers. It s simple premise is to build on your core studies with flexible skills and personal projects that help bind your core subject to real world situations. Attributes We ve outlined a set of skills that will help graduates get ready for the fast moving and flexible job market of the 21st century. Take note of these skills and find ways to use and grow them in both your course work and external activities. Creative and Enterprising DCU students are encouraged to be innovative in their approach to problem solving. DCU graduates will be adaptable and willing to pursue new ideas. Committed to Continuous Learning DCU promotes inquiry, reflection and evaluation. DCU graduates will have learned that knowledge is not fixed or static, and that insights and skills can always be improved and developed. Solution Oriented DCU emphasises the importance of providing solutions to problems. DCU graduates will be skilled at effectively applying knowledge to issues encountered in the workplace and in society. Effective Communicators DCU motivates students to appreciate the importance of communication. DCU graduates will be able to draw on appropriate skills to negotiate effectively, collaborate and influence others. Globally Engaged DCU encourages students to be locally and globally aware, to value tolerance and cultural diversity, and to be committed to civic engagement. DCU graduates will understand the importance of engaging with their communities in an ethically responsible manner. Active Leaders DCU focuses strongly on the development of leadership skills. Graduates will appreciate that it is their responsibility to take the initiative and to make changes for the better in every walk of life. At DCU, we are committed to creating an environment which will help you develop these attributes through formal and informal learning as well as through a full engagement in the university experience. Project Portfolio In order to help develop these skills as well as your own passions, identity and place in the world, each student has access to a digital project portfolio. This is where you capture information about any projects, activities or events you re involved in outside your core studies. Whether you re involved in a club or society, on a sports team, are volunteering, helping or developing a community project. Document your projects with photos or scans of clippings, posters or anything else that helps show your involvement. And finally reflect on your involvement and how you developed skills from the toolbox. Growth Starting this process in first year means that by the time you re approaching graduation you ll have a rich, well documented portfolio of personal achievements. You ll have organically developed and strengthened your toolbox of skills and you ll have a strong sense of how to make the transition from being a student to the working world. Your portfolio will also be an important tool in helping to set yourself apart in the job market and clearly showing an employer just what you can do. Uaneen Module In the final year, for students who have been particularly active or engaged, there is the opportunity to add a final layer of depth to their activities by taking part in the Uaneen Module. This requires a written reflection on an aspect of their portfolio and what they ve learned from it. Completion of the Uaneen module truly sets the student apart as someone with drive, ambition and energy. For more information on the Uaneen Module, visit
