Open Education Unit

The Open Education Unit supports a range of undergraduate and postgraduate online courses and programmes for students studying through DCU Connected.

Dublin City University has provided part-time mature students with flexible access to higher education through distance and online learning for more than thirty years. Thousands of students have graduated with world-class DCU degrees whilst studying online and from off-campus locations around Ireland, and beyond, in that time.

As DCU Connected courses consist of a series of individual modules, you can tailor your study workload to the time you have available and build up credits towards your degree over time. Our online courses through DCU Connected provide attractive options to study towards either an undergraduate and postgraduate degree. Importantly, our undergraduate online courses are open to anyone and if you are over 23 and living in Ireland, then you do not need a Leaving Certificate.

The Open Education Unit has a team of highly experienced staff committed to supporting your learning, wherever you are. We are here to ensure that we support your learning needs as part-time, online, flexible learners. The Unit is part of the National Institute for Digital Learning (NIDL). As part of the NIDL we are also committed to ensuring that our DCU Connected offerings are informed by leading-edge research into online and blended learning.
