American College Dublin appreciates that the student’s life outside the classroom is essential to achieving the best academic results. ACD offers a range of opportunities to encourage and empower all students to achieve their personal and academic potential. The College strives to create a community which is open and caring and where diversity is expected and respected. The Office of Student Services provides a one-stop alternative to long lines and confusion; the convenience of having questions and concerns addressed in one location helps to alleviate some of the anxiety about starting a new course, or indeed the anxieties that continue beyond the first months through to graduation. Any student who encounters difficulties (whether academic, personal, health or practical issues) can be assured that the College’s support services are available to provide advice and assistance.
