DCU has evolved to a scale that was unimaginable back when I graduated in 1990 and it continues to have ambition far beyond this. In particular I am proud of DCU’s laser focus on being “The University of Enterprise” which is both inspiring and reassuring at the same time because that is exactly what DCU is.

In the august of 1984 I was offered a place in Communications Studies at DCU or NIHE as it was then known. My parents, worried that the course itself and the upstart university as a whole lacked any sort of credibility, persuaded me to visit the campus in advance on a sort of recce.
