Attending college for the first time can be an exciting prospect. However, many also find the prospect of moving from second level to a third level institution can be a daunting experience. At Independent College Dublin we want to ensure that this transition is as painless as possible. For this reason, we organise student induction before the commencement of each undergraduate programme. This allows all students the opportunity to meet their Head of Faculty Manager, Course Coordinator and their fellow students.
Each academic programme has a dedicated staff member who deals with any academic issues which students may encounter. The faculty administrative staff have an open office policy from 9.30am-17.30pm Monday to Friday.
Independent College Dublin is aware of the ever increasing challenges facing students. A good CV is vital when applying for jobs. It is also very important to prepare for interviews. Our Careers Officer will assist final year students in writing your C.V and offer guidance and advice in preparing for your interview.
Access to services such as Moodle, online resources and journals, wireless internet access, and online storage are provided on a complimentary basis to all registered students.
