Program Summary: 

The Kansas/DCU exchange was initiated to allow KU Chemistry majors to spend the spring semester of the third or fourth year studying at Dublin City University, in the vibrant capital of Ireland. Over time, additional subjects became available to KU students at DCU in the natural sciences, health-related subjects, and even some social sciences, particularly Political Science.

All students receive up to 15 KU credit hours for a semester of study at DCU.

Students studying at DCU for the full year or spring semester will have full access to courses on DCU's SHSAO course list, while fall-only students will have a difficult time finding enough courses that will allow them to return to KU in time to begin the spring semester back in Lawrence. More details on this can be found in the "Academic Information" section below.

Location: 

Dublin, the capital of Ireland, is a warm and welcoming place. It is the center of Irish industry so internship opportunities are available in wide range of fields. The city prides itself on its beautifully preserved buildings and rich culture. Nearly one-third of the Irish population lives in Dublin, and half of the country’s people aged 26 and younger live there.  Thanks to its young population, Dublin is incredibly lively with a great selection of clubs, pubs, and things to do. It offers fabulous museums and galleries, quaint streets and byways, and good shopping.

Academic Information: 

All students will earn up to 15 KU credits. KU students are limited in their course choices to DCU's SHSAO course lists.
