Academic Program
Students apply to one college or program within UCD. The majority of courses must be within the student’s college or chosen program. 

Eligible STEM students may choose to enroll in the Science Research Module: “Introduction to Scientific Research” (.67 Pomona credits). In this research module, students become active members of a University research group under the direction of local faculty. This unique research program is an opportunity to actively learn how to develop a hypothesis and experiment, analyze data, and write and present about their findings. This module is open to students with or without prior research experience.

At least one course must be taken at “level three” (upper level). Students should bear in mind that most level three courses have prerequisites and admission to particular courses is contingent on approval by the relevant UCD department, based on the applicant’s background and experience.

All students are required to take at least one course with significant Irish content.

Credits are assigned on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), with each course weighing 5 ECTS or 10 ECTS. A full course load is 30 ECTS (4.0 Pomona credits).

Living Arrangements
Students will live in an apartment/flat at University College Dublin and meals will be self-catered.
