Garda vetting is process of checking a person’s background to see if there are any issues which would make him/her unsuitable to work or volunteer in an environment with children and/or vulnerable adults. The person being vetted (the applicant) gives written authorisation for An Garda Síochána to disclose to TU Dublin – Blanchardstown details of all prosecutions, successful or not, pending or completed recorded in the State at the time of application.
If you are a student on any of the following courses, you must be Garda vetted:
This list may be added to should the need arise for students on other courses to be vetted.
Prior to attending Registration/Induction day, all first year students on the above courses are required to:
b) Irish Public Services Card
c) Driver’s License ( credit card style only )
Once the student’s information has been inputted into the Garda vetting system, an email will be sent to the students e-mail account with log in details to the Garda e-vetting portal. Students have 30 days to complete their on-line application before the invitation lapses.
Students who fail to make the full application within the 30 days, will be rerquired to pay a fee of €20 to make a second application.
Currently, it takes about 2 weeks for vetting to be completed from the time the student makes the full online application on the Garda e-vetting portal.
If you lose your Garda vetting clearance letter, additional copies are available at a cost of €20.
