It is challenging. But if you adopt the right attitude straight away it can be a lot easier. I would advise anyone to be a hard worker and maintain a positive attitude. Also be organised, right down to keeping notes. You start your career in college, not after it.

Realist?
Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Live Q and A Sessions

On Monday 26th June 2017 DCU will host a live online Q & A information session from 2pm- 4pm to answer any questions on studying in DCU, courses on offer and what you can expect as a DCU student.

You can also ask more general questions on entry requirements, accommodation, student supports or whatever you wish to ask that will help in your decision making.
