Disability Access Route to Education (DARE)

DARE logo - Maynooth University

As a means of widening participation at third level, Maynooth University and other participating HEI's have developed ​the Disability Access Route to Education (DARE) scheme.  This is an admissions scheme which aims to promote equity of access to higher education for school leavers with disabilities. This scheme was established since clear evidence shows that disability can have a negative impact on educational attainment at school and progression to higher education. For further information on the DARE scheme visit the DARE section of our website or see www.accesscollege.ie
