About Dorset College

About Dorset College

We offer a number of specialised courses across the School of Business and the School of Computing, as well as a range of professional and healthcare courses. Our aim with every one of these courses is to develop a clear professional pathway tailored to each individual student. As a consequence of this approach, many of our graduates have gone on to work for leading companies in Ireland and abroad, such as Accenture, Aviva, Diageo, Google, Meta, TikTok, and more.

At Dorset, our culturally-diverse, student-centered learning environment enables each individual to grow in confidence, maximise their potential, and develop a clear career path with excellent opportunities for progression. We take pride in cultivating a person-focused and welcoming community, with ambition at the forefront. During their time at Dorset, students will develop not just academically, but socially, culturally, and professionally. Regular events, like weekend trips across Ireland, museum, gallery visits, and social gatherings in local venues, are all part of the Dorset experience.

Our dedicated team of academic and professional staff take pride in the close relationships they build with students—openness and direct communication are key. We want every student to leave Dorset inspired, motivated, and ready to meet emerging challenges in an ever-changing professional world.

Dorset College is a designated educational institute of Quality & Qualifications Ireland (QQI), accredited by CIPD, PMI®, Acels
