All N.U.in Ireland students participate in an orientation program once they arrive in Dublin. This orientation introduces participants to their new neighborhood and to the services available at the Dublin Business School (DBS) and University College Dublin (UCD), builds community among the group, and reviews academic policies and expectations.
Orientation sessions include an academic overview, transitioning to college, an introduction to the campuses and services, and a Service-Learning session. Participants are then invited to join a walking tour of their new neighborhood after sitting in on a session geared toward housing policies. An additional tour of Dublin, by bus, is also included.
