Programme Office

Each course (programme in UCD) is supported by a Programme Office. They are your first point of contact if you need academic advice or pastoral support. They are there to help you with any concern or query relating to your degree programme. Some of the key areas your Programme Office can help you with are:

  • Registration queries
  • Academic Programme advice
  • Extenuating circumstances/medical certificates
  • Withdrawals from/re-admission to programmes
  • Referral to Student Adviser/faculty/Disability Support Services, etc.

Contact the Programme Office at ian.bonar@ucd.ie.

Student Advisers

Student Advisers provide support for all students, particularly first years, during their time at university. They are located in all five Colleges and are either attached to particular programmes or to specific groups of students. They work closely with administrative and academic staff as well as with the Chaplains and other support staff. From simple requests for information to more confidential and serious matters your Student Adviser will give you the time and space to talk things through.
