Diversity & Access

The DkIT Access office is committed to increasing access and participation rates of students from under-represented groups. We coordinate mature entry and access scholarships into DkIT.

Welcome to DkIT's Access Office, whose mission is to create an accessible, inclusive, sustainable learning environment and to promote access to higher education for traditionally under-represented groups including mature students, students from a background of socio-economic disadvantage and those from the Traveller community. On this page you will find some of the supports and services provided by the Access Office.
