Located on Merrion Square, in the heart of Ireland’s capital city, American College Dublin offers an outstanding post-secondary education. Established as a not-for-profit educational trust in 1993 by Lynn University (located in Boca Raton, Florida), the College has grown from a study abroad campus for US students to a global institution with over sixty nationalities among its student body. The College is a constituent college of Irish American University, and has a sister campus in Claymont, Delaware, named American College Delaware, through which it offers a range of shared programmes and transfer opportunities between Ireland and the USA.
American College Dublin takes the time-honoured American tradition of the moderately-sized, not-for-profit liberal arts institution and places it in an international context, with campuses on both sides of the Atlantic rim. The mission of the institution is to offer the best characteristics of Irish and American higher education in an intimate environment underpinned by the holistic liberal arts model of learning, enabling students to realize their potential and participate successfully in the world. The College provides an education that is rigorous, stimulating and valuable, emphasizing the core values of academic excellence, innovation, ethical integrity and multiculturalism. Class sizes are small (generally no more than thirty students to a class) and the teacher engages the student in an educational experience that is active, participative and challenging. Many of the programmes of study have an internship component, which allows students to apply their classroom learning in relevant industry environments and provides them with practical experience related to their field of study. A high proportion of the College’s graduates progress to further studies at the postgraduate level.
American College Dublin strives to instill a passion for education that advances the development of the individual’s talents and a process of lifelong learning; we would be grateful for the opportunity to accompany you on this journey.
Our Admissions counsellors take part in educational exhibitions and fairs in Ireland and across the world. This allows them to meet potential students and their parents and discuss the student’s options at American College Dublin. This is a great opportunity for first-hand information about the college.
