What is College Connect?

College is for anyone. The College Connect team is here to help you navigate your education options and achieve your aspirations.

College Connect is a partnership of higher education institutions and community groups. They work together to signpost you to the support and services you need to apply for college.

The project uses community research to identify barriers experienced by people who are under-represented in higher education. This provides tailored solutions such as mentoring and financial advice.

Our vision is a student population that reflects and respects the diversity of our community.

College Connect is a joint initiative of four Higher Education Institutions in the Midlands and North Dublin Region (MEND). Dublin City University (DCU), Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT), Maynooth University (MU) and Technological University of the Shannon (TUS) Midlands.
