Senior College Dún Laoghaire (SCD) is a college of further education which was established in 1982. It provides both higher educational qualifications (BTEC Higher National Diploma) as well as technical/vocational education and training in areas such in Beauty Theraphy, I.C.T, Sports Massage etc.

Since its foundation the college developed rapidly and was soon providing Accounting, Marketing, Business, Beautician, Interactive Media and Interior Design courses for full-time and part-time students. The College is now one of the largest educational providers in the Further Education (FE) sector and offers full-time, mornings only as well as nightcourses. The college provides awards at FETAC Levels 5 and 6 as well as the more advanced BTEC/Edexcel Higher National Diploma/Certificate etc. Many students who successfully complete the Higher National Diploma in Business progress onto the third (& final) year of a related degree in Swansea Metropolitan and/or IADT Dun Laoghaire.

SCD continues to offer a wide range of professional programmes with professional bodies such as Accounting Technicians Ireland, CompTIA, ITEC and BTEC to name but a few.


Senior College Dún Laoghaire is located in the historic town of Dún Laoghaire, 10 kilometres from Dublin City Centre. Dún Laoghaire is a ferry port, and is located in the hinterland of "Dublin's Riviera" - the stretch of coast encompassing Dalkey and Killiney.

The college is scheduled to relocate to a new building in Blackrock by 2012 and will be renamed as Blackrock Education Institute (BFEI).
