As the capital of the Republic of Ireland, Dublin is one of the liveliest cities in Europe. The city has a full and varied cultural and intellectual life, which brings together the best of traditional Ireland and of modern Europe.
The SettingIreland has been renowned for music, literature and art for centuries. It's world-famous for its friendly citizens and warm welcomes. With extensive bus routes and train lines available, Dublin is a transportation hub for exploring every nook of this unique, beautiful county. With a huge urban campus, state-of-the-art facilities, and the largest student body of any university in Ireland, UCD welcomes hundreds of new international students every year.
University College Dublin offers students the opportunity to take classes (known as modules) in the following programs: Agriculture, Food and Nutrition, Architecture & Planning, Arts & Humanities, Engineering, Science, Social Sciences, and International Affairs.
Students take 30 ECTS per semester at UCD. ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) is a credit weighting, so the number of modules (classes) a student takes at UCD varies on the credit values for each of their modules, which usually have a 5, 10 or 15 ECTS value.
