Information for Incoming Students

WELCOME TO THE SCHOOL OF MEDIA

May I extend a warm welcome to all our visiting exchange students and trust that you will have an enjoyable and fruitful time here in the School of Media at the DIT.

The School of Media is Ireland’s largest and oldest media school. The learning resources here in Aungier Street and Grangegorman are first class and you will enjoy access to state of the art IT facilities, learning platforms and media library.

The majority of these facilities are situated in downtown Dublin, a vibrant and dynamic capital with an exciting range of theatres, live music venues and cultural events. Your presence amongst us is valued also because you help to bring an international perspective to our local students. Do make the effort to network and socialise with your fellow students. May I strongly recommend that you join one of the many societies and sport clubs.

Dublin is a wonderful city but there is much else in Ireland you should experience. Make the effort to see the rest of Ireland. It will be the beginning of a lifelong relationship! You will find our staff and students friendly and helpful but do not hesitate to contact to me if you feel you need specific advice and guidance.

I wish you every success in your studies at School of Media.

Yours sincerely, 
Tony Murray 
Erasmus Coordinator School of Media

Learning Agreement

Once your have been successful in your Exchange or Erasmus application you will need to consider what modules to take while at DIT. Choosing the right modules is key to having a successful learning experience while at the School of Media. However, there are some practicalities and logistics considerations to selecting modules. While it may appear that you can take any modules from our Module Catalogue, much of what is available will be dictated by the timetable of the programme you are joining. In addition to the modules listed below there are two additional modules offered to Exchange and Erasmus students.

 

Two specific modules have been designed for you. Irish Cultural Studies is an exciting module designed to introduce you to the rich and varied aspects of historical and contemporary Irish life and culture. English for Academic Purposes is design to support non-English speaking students to improve your spoken English and writing.

 

 

 

 


 

 

Information for outgoing DIT students

Studying abroad is a central part of Erasmus+ and has been shown to have a positive effect on later job prospects. It is also an opportunity to improve language skills, gain self-confidence and independence and immerse yourself in a new culture.

Erasmus+ helps organise student exchanges within Erasmus+ Programme countries and to and from Partner countries. By studying abroad with Erasmus+, you can improve your communication, language and inter-cultural skills and gain soft skills highly valued by future employers. Read more about the benefits of an exchange abroad.

You can also combine your period spent studying abroad in a Programme country with a traineeship to gain work experience — ever more important when starting out on the job market. Access to Erasmus+ Online Linguistic Support will help you learn the language used for your studies if you are moving between Programme countries. Students with physical, mental or health-related conditions may apply for additional funding after they have been selected to study abroad.
