The Access Office promotes access to the institute from groups that have traditionally been under-represented in third-level education including mature students, students from a background of socio-economic disadvantage and those from the Traveller community.
Any applicant 23 years of age or over on 1st January in the year of entry is considered to be a mature applicant. Dundalk Institute of Technology actively encourages applications on mature grounds. Mature students register on all programmes and contribute positively to academic and campus life.
The Access Office welcomes group visits from ETB students, community groups and others. A structured visit to DkIT is a good way to find out more about what is involved in third level study.
Dundalk Institute of Technology confirms its commitment to develop, maintain and support a comprehensive access policy predicated on a respect for the values of equality, inclusion and diversity.
