DCU has established Ireland’s Open Learning Academy with a growing suite of online short courses to promote access to new pathways for life-long learning. Many of our short courses are free and they provide a great way to extend your mind and get some experience of online learning. We even offer a short course known as Head Start Online, which is designed for anyone thinking about undertaking further study through an online or flexible learning approach.
At DCU we also welcome approaches from national and international partners, businesses and industries to develop bespoke short courses targeted for specific groups through an appropriate combination of online learning and face-to- face delivery. Please contact us if you would like to discuss some of our short course design and delivery options.
