DIT Access Service

The DIT Access & Civic Engagement Service was established in 1999 to assist individuals and communities in overcoming socio-economic barriers to accessing higher education.

Dublin Institute of Technology recognises the role of higher education in providing benefits to individuals and communities and is committed to ensuring that people and communities experiencing educational disadvantage are supported in accessing higher education.

DIT Access Service aims to:

Support students from disadvantaged schools in applying to higher education through a comprehensive programme of initiatives for schools and communities.

Facilitate access to higher education for students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds incorporating ethnic minority students through higher education access entry routes.

Assist access students in adjusting successfully to DIT and gaining maximum benefit from their time in DIT by providing a range of post-entry supports.
