The Placement Office

Work placement is a central feature of a number of programmes of study across DkIT, where students participate in a structured and assessed period of work experience in a relevant professional setting. We work with students and employers to enhance student learning and make meaningful linkages with all professional fields locally, nationally and internationally.

Annually we co-ordinate the placement of over 900 students across the disciplines of Business, Humanities, Creative Media, Health Studies and Applied Sciences. 

If you have any queries please contact our office by email at joyce.ohara@dkit.ie or by phone +353-0429370225.

Our Services

Work placement is a partnership between the student, the host organisation and the Institute. The Placement Office is the central point of contact for each of these parties in relation to the preparation, logistics, administration, management and on-going development of work placement.

We work to ensure that work placement is a mutually beneficial relationship where students are afforded a unique learning experience and organisations are provided with a student who contributes to the benefit of the workplace.
