DCU’s ‘live’ online Q&A Information Sessions will be happening the week of 20th-24th April from 2-4pm featuring one DCU Faculty per day and DCU staff and students will be on hand to answer any questions you may have on the courses you are interested in. Just type in your question and one of our experts will get back to you.
A new podcast series from DCU will give secondary school students an authentic sense of what it’s like to study a wide range of DCU courses, as well as life at the university.
The wide range of courses featured are from across DCU’s five faculties: DCU Institute of Education, the DCU Faculty of Science & Health, DCU Faculty of Computing & Engineering, DCU Business School, and the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.
The series features interviews with current DCU students from Business Studies, Accounting & Finance, Aviation Management, Business Studies International with Spanish, Business Studies Global German, Analytical Science, Science Education, PE with Maths, Psychology, Enterprise Computing, Early Childhood Education, International Relations, Economics, Politics and Law, and Communication Studies.
In the interviews, students explain why they chose DCU; what to expect year by year; what supports are in place if students are struggling to cope; the importance of work placements; exams and assessments; campus life outside of the course; and life after DCU.
The ‘TeamDCU’ podcast series is now available on Spotify here: https://spoti.fi/2RrzOjA
You can also listen to it via dcu.ie here, and it will be available on Apple and Android in the coming weeks.
The daily tutorials cover a wide range of introductory physics topics from mechanics to wave motion to thermodynamics. They are focused on problem solving, and each one is dedicated to working through a problem from the end-of-chapter questions found in physics textbooks. The problems are chosen so that they take in a wide range of skills and concepts from the topic. They should be of benefit to anyone studying physics either for the Leaving Cert, or in the first year of a science degree in University.
You can find the link to the tutorials HERE.
