DCU is an excellent workplace where staff are valued and supported. My line manager is excellent, and very easy to deal with. Work is varied and challenging, with no two days being exactly alike.

The job title does not determine the role you will play. You are encouraged to be creative and innovative. Your ideas will be listened to and you will be encouraged to see your role creatively.

It is a very challenging job and also an opportunity. The best part of this role is you learn and you teach and every day you learn something new and different. And it is your responsibility to teach the right thing as the lectures are being delivered to students who are going to learn from me.
Every day the lectures and tutorials delivered by me, have lectures, quizzes, and also presentations, and grading all of them.


This role gives the opportunity to push yourself and learn some new tool or software or course or programming language. It also teaches you in understanding students and what different doubts can arise, which help to understand the subject more in-depth.

DCU is one of the few places in ireland where the sky is the limit. It's unassuming, innovative and engaging on both technology and business levels. Students are put at the forefront of any activity around the university. Faculty are treated with respect and listened to by management.

En DCU aprendí a tener fluidez con el inglés. En cuanto a la dirección, puedo decir que era buena. Debo destacar que me gustaron las facilidades dadas para profundizar en el idioma en cuestión.
