Higher education is about developing students’ whole personality and participating in a wide range of activities beyond the lecture theatre, library or computer laboratory which will shape their identity in the coming years. The DBS Student Services department co-ordinates a growing number of clubs and societies each academic year, which have enjoyed success at various Intervarsity levels.

In the recent years, Ireland has seen a significant increase in the international student enrolments. Across the higher education sector, DBS has been widely acknowledged as the one of the largest contributor to the said growth in inward student mobility to Ireland. As the world fights the pandemic, all economic forecasts predict that Ireland will return to the pre-COVID-19 levels as early as 2021. As Pascal O’Donoghue, Minister of Finance for Ireland puts it “The current crisis is a health one and not related to any inherent macroeconomic imbalance at the heart of the economy.”
