The Disability Access Route to Education (DARE) is a third-level admissions scheme for students with a disability. The scheme is operated by a number of higher education institutions and not by my Department. Admissions to the institutions are regulated by the institutions themselves.

Further details in relation to the DARE scheme including the eligibility criteria, closing dates and contact details for the participating Higher Education Institutions, is available at www.accesscollege.ie.
