Access Service - TU Dublin City Campus

Important

Access are conscious that some students have compulsory placement/Erasmus next Semester and will be departing before the 28th August which is when Access SAF applications go live! I recommend that each of you complete the attached Bank Mandate form now (needs to be stamped by your bank) see file below. You can scan/photo it to yourself (ensure it is a crystal clear copy) and store it on file in your emails. That way come 28th August regardless of where you are in the world you can print off and complete the rest of the application form attaching your bank mandate to it and either scan&email/post the total application all together to the Access and Civic Engagement Office.  

 

Hopefully this will prevent delays for you in September or ineligible incomplete applications being submitted (as the bank mandate section can only be completed from Ireland). Please note, as always the Access SAF is first come first served, the application form plus bank mandate needs to be received in full before your application to be considered as eligible.

Thank you,

Academic Writing Support:

The Academic Writing Centre provides a free service to all TU Dublin City Centre Campus students (undergraduate and postgraduate) who seek support to enhance and develop their academic writing skills. 

What is academic writing?

As part of college work students are required to submit written assignments, essays, projects, examination scripts, dissertations and theses. These require students to be able to eg present information, communicate ideas, develop and make an argument effectively.  Defined as academic writing skills, these core competences are viewed as a key indicator for student success in college.
