Through DCU's INTRA programme, students gain relevant, paid work experience as part of most of our degree programmes. This gives our students an early introduction into the world of enterprise and employment and, as a result, employers frequently comment that they choose DCU graduates because they can 'hit the ground running'. In 2011, more than 800 students from 26 undergraduate programmes completed INTRA placements.
DCU is a young and vibrant university established just 21 years ago with bright modern architecture. It has grown rapidly in scale with almost 11,500 students. Located on an 85 acre campus 3 miles north of the River Liffey and close to the city centre.
