What activities can I do at UCD?

If you are registered for the UCD Embark Award, all the activities that you include as part of your award submission must be UCD based. For the UCD Advantage Award you can include one non UCD activity, for example a Summer internship that was not part of your academic programme, voluntary work in your home community or participation in a local sports club.

To give you some ideas and inspiration we have compiled a list of some of the many activities that you can get involved in at UCD – there are lots to choose from!

This list is not exhaustive so if there are other activities that you think should be included here please let us know (skillsaward@ucd.ie)
