Padden, Lisa; Tonge, Julie
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v65 n1 p90-107 2018
This article offers a review of the DARE as it operated in University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland from 2010 to 2013. This DARE scheme allows applicants to provide details of their disability and its impact on their education, with a view to competing for specially allocated places on their programme of choice, should they not receive an offer of a place based on the merit of their Leaving Certificate Second Level examination results. This article provides an overview of the DARE scheme and a detailed analysis of the profile of students who applied and were eligible for the DARE scheme, and accepted a place in UCD, between 2010 and 2013. It details how these students have progressed and how their educational outcomes compare to that of the general student body as well as making recommendations for the improvement of the scheme.
