DCU is one of the three big colleges ( the other two being TCD and UCD ) in Dublin , Ireland. It has a good reputation as a technical college and graduates from its computer applications course are quite sought after by companies both inside and outside of Ireland.

However while DCU may be good from an academic point of view it is an absolutely terrible place to go if as a student you intend to have a good social life. It is situated on the north side of Dublin away from the city center and hence removed from most social activities. Also, due to their not being any courses like philosophy , art or English in DCU the activities and societies that are present in and around the college campus are mediocre and drab at best .
