We have decided to offer a very straight forward process for getting an offer of a place in Dunboyne College for 2020. We have replaced our traditional interview with a Personal Statement.
On application, if a student uploads a 100-200 word Personal Statement titled: "Why I have chosen this course and why I am suitable for this course" they will be eligible for an offer. Applications & Personal Statements uploaded by Friday of any week will receive an offer letter the following week (where a student is eligible). Guidelines for Personal Statements are available on our website https://dunboynecollege.ie/index.php/latest-news/624-guidelines. We advise that students apply at their earliest convenience to secure an offer as courses fill on a first come first served basis, and some of the more popular courses do fill up early in the summer. Students can always opt out of the course up to the end of September if you receive a third level offer or they may change their mind about their course.
Where a student has already applied but omitted to upload their Personal Statement they can still do so; To upload the Personal Statement students just login to their application using their digit ID number and password (which can be found on their acknowledgement letter). If they cannot find their login details they can contact our admissions officer Vilma at Vleimonaite.dbc@Lmetb.ie. Once they have uploaded their Personal Statement, they need to confirm that they have done so by emailing Vilma at Vleimonaite.firstname.lastname@example.org
Our students are very successful in accessing the thousands of third level offers available to PLC graduates. Over 90% of our students who complete the year with us and gain a full award get a third level offer. It often represents a much better option than repeating the leaving cert as you can study nursing, computers, psychology, science etc., or whatever your passion is on a full-time basis. We have over 50 courses on offer this year.

Registration is now open for the Maynooth University Engineering Maths Exam for 2020.
This exam is a great opportunity for Leaving Cert students to secure the required H4 Maths for the MH304 Electronic Engineering Course in Maynooth University.
See what Jessica who used this entry route had to say about the exam;
Like any 6th year student heading to college I had no idea what I wanted to study. All I knew for certain was that I liked maths and I enjoyed solving problems. Therefore, I put engineering and computer science down on my CAO. As it turned out my worst nightmare came true, I let myself down in my Leaving Cert. I was made aware after my results about an exam Maynooth University offered to study Electronic Engineering. It was my saving grace as rather than repeating my Leaving Cert, I had this second chance to keep progressing. Needless to say I aced it, I am now on my way to graduating with a ME in Electronic Engineering in 2021! – Jessica Cullen, current MH304 Electronic Engineering Student
