University College Dublin is a vibrant, modern university with almost 25,000 students situated on a spacious and leafy campus, only 3 miles to the south of Dublin's city center. UCD offers a lively campus community in which to live and study. The university has modern buildings and first-class academic and sporting facilities. UCD is one of the highest ranked institutions in Europe making it a great place for students to study abroad.


Semester/Year Program
Students participating in this program can choose from over 170 programs at UCD! UCD offers over 70+ undergraduate honors degree courses in a variety of subject areas.

In addition to major coursework, students are also enrolled in a required course in Irish History and Culture. Field trips to places of historical interest are an integral component of the Irish History and Culture course.  For information on the University College Dublin semester/year courses, click here.

Summer Internship Program
University College Dublin also offers a summer internship program, an eight-week program including a six-week placement in an Irish company.  During this program, students receive a total of six credits, consisting of the internship course and the student’s choice of one other course: Irish History, International Business, or Service Learning.


UCD has set aside a large proportion of on-campus rooms for international students. However, places are limited and accommodation cannot be guaranteed for all international students. If you are not able to rent a room in the student residences on-campus, or if you would rather live off-campus, you can contact the UCD Residences Off-Campus Office or the Student Union Accommodation Services for advice on off-campus options.  For more information on accommodation, click here.


Student Life and Surroundings

Life at UCD is not just about lectures and study. Sports, societies and social life are vital ingredients of the university experience. There are endless opportunities for students to get involved on campus. The UCD Student Center and UCD Sport & Fitness are at the heart of student life in UCD.

In the Student Center, there is a state of the art 3D cinema where the university plays the latest blockbusters and classic films. Within the Student Center there is also a 600-seat auditorium, meeting rooms, a new TV Studio, Radio Pod, Seminar Room, a medical center, pharmacy, barbers, newsagents and a host of great places to eat or just chill out. There is also the UCD Club House bar, where friends meet to hangout and watch sports on the big screens.

UCD Sport & Fitness houses a number of top class sporting facilities, including: an Olympic sized swimming pool; a brand new gym; as well as dance and spinning studios. After workouts students can even wind down in the sauna or the jacuzzi. All of these facilities are available to students throughout the year.

The city of Dublin itself also offers countless opportunities for students to explore. With restaurants, pubs, museums, theaters, and frequently occurring events, students can easily immerse themselves in Irish culture.

Public transportation and railway systems, as well as an international airport allow students to travel throughout the city as well as other Irish destinations and European countries.
