University College Dublin (UCD) is one of Europe's leading research-intensive universities and Ireland’s largest and most diverse. With its origins in the Catholic University of Ireland, UCD has long played a central role in Ireland’s advancement. Today it’s a modern, vibrant university on a leafy campus 5km from the city centre.
UCD is Ireland’s most diverse university, with more than 6,000 international students and a focus on internationalising the Irish student experience. The University accounts for over 30 per cent of international students, over 25 per cent of all graduate students and almost 28 per cent of all doctoral enrolments across the seven Irish universities. It promotes students’ personal and intellectual development with a stimulating, supportive environment and a highly flexible curriculum delivered by globally recognised experts.
Unique characteristics
UCD’s College of Engineering and Architecture collaborates with industry to conduct research and training. With excellent rankings and accreditation, it is the destination of choice for many Irish students. It’s active in research and has established the 'Dublin Creative Design Network' to boost design, innovation and creativity within Engineering, Architecture and Computer Science.
UCD’s beautiful campus contains academic facilities, research institutes, libraries and archival collections, enterprise space, student villages, and sports and recreational facilities. Dublin has something for everyone – it’s a UNESCO City of Literature, the eighth best student city in the world and the EU headquarters for Google, Facebook, Intel and Twitter. It’s renowned for music, literature and art, its beaches, cliff walks and mountain trails, and offers a fun cultural experience in a country voted by Lonely Planet as the friendliest in the world.
