Creative?

Creative

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be atrracted to the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design activities, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Why us?

For most courses class size is generally between 20 and 30 students.

There are no fees for tuition, however there are course charges. In line with provision in the third level sector these charges exist to cover the costs of the following items: books, some equipment, uniforms/clothing, student services, student union, examination fees and registration charges by professional bodies. Course charges can be found at the end of individual course pages on the website.

There are no points required for entry to any of our courses.  In general applicants are required to have their Leaving Certificate and to be successful in an interview.  For some courses it may be necessary to present a portfolio of work. For specific course requirements see individual course pages.

The number of mature students attending Further Education courses in Coláiste Dhúlaigh is increasing each year and at present constitutes a significant proportion of our total numbers. Mature students are very welcome and Learner Supports will pay particular attention to their learning needs.

In many cases advanced entry is possible. Many of our courses have long-established links with colleges in Ireland and the UK, including DCU, DIT, IT Tallaght, Dundalk IT, IADT, and final year entry into honours degree programmes at the University of Ulster, University of Wolverhampton and others.
