The Disability Support Service (DSS) are committed to the provision of educational opportunities to Students with Disabilities (SwD) on full-time undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes, as well as mature students and international students with disabilities. We offer a dedicated support service to students registered with our service. 

The Disability Support Service welcomes and supports prospective students with a wide variety of disabilities 

DARE is a third level alternative admissions scheme for school-leavers under the age of 23 as of 1 January 2023  whose disabilities have had a negative impact on their second level education. 

Applicants to DARE can present with an Irish Leaving Certificate, A-Levels and/or other EU qualifications.

DARE offers reduced points places to school leavers who, as a result of having a disability, have experienced additional educational challenges in second level education.
