IMPORTANT! Please note that this exchange program is limited in spaces we have to send students, and therefore is highly competitive. We encourage you to apply, but please note that we are able to send  10  students during the 2017-2018 year.

The Program

This wonderful exchange opportunity is available to agriculture [including nutritional sciences], engineering, humanities, science and social science students.

University College Dublin (UCD), a member of Universitas 21, 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 community. Today, UCD is a vibrant, modern university situated on a spacious and leafy campus some 3 miles 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.
