The University


University College Dublin is Ireland’s largest and most richly diversified university. The University provides a broad range of Bachelors, Masters and PhD degrees in subjects grouped into five Colleges (College of Arts and Celtic Studies, College of Business and Law, College  of Human Sciences, College of Life Sciences, College of Engineering, Mathematical and Physical Sciences). UCD traces its origins to the Catholic University of Ireland founded in 1854 by Cardinal John Henry Newman, author of the celebrated “The Idea of a University”. Since then, the university has played a central role in Ireland’s advancement as a dynamic and highly successful European state and has established a long and distinguished tradition of service to scholarship and the Irish and international community.


Today, UCD is a vibrant, modern university of over 24,000 students situated on a spacious and leafy campus 5 km to the south of Dublin city centre. For students, both Irish and international, it is a supportive and stimulating environment in which to spend a period of intellectual and personal development. UCD offers a lively campus community in which to live and study. The university has modern buildings and first-class academic and sporting facilities. It has a busy extracurricular life and students are encouraged to become actively involved in the wide range of social, cultural and sporting activities available. UCD also has comprehensive student support services, including a student health centre, student advisers, counselling, and careers advisory facilities. Student accommodation is available for 2,500 students and UCD’s International Office provides guidance to international students who seek accommodation off campus. In 2009/10, over 19% of UCD’s student body came from outside Ireland and this international dimension is greatly valued by the university.

Dublin

Ireland’s capital is Dublin, a cosmopolitan, Georgian city of approximately 1M people. As a capital city, Dublin offers a great variety of amenities, including theatres, cinemas and parks. However, given its relatively small size, the city can be easily navigated. There are train links to Belfast in Northern Ireland, Galway in the west of Ireland and Cork in the south.

Dublin began as a Viking settlement founded over one thousand years ago on the banks of the River Liffey and situated on a majestic broad sweeping bay.  It became an administrative capital after the Norman conquest of Ireland in the twelfth century and developed its own parliament and government institutions under British sovereignty from the fourteenth century onwards. During the eighteenth century, the city grew rapidly with the Wide Street Commissioners overseeing the building of fine Georgian architecture which still exists today. Towards the end of the nineteenth century, Dublin became the centre of two great cultural movements - the Gaelic League, aimed at restoring the Irish Language, and the Irish Literary Renaissance. Ireland became a republic in 1949 and Dublin is now the thriving capital of this independent country and the centre of the political, diplomatic, administrative and commercial life. Ireland is a member of the European Union and is a Eurozone member country. There are excellent air links to European capitals and flight time to London is approximately 1 hour.
