Document Verification

Please note that applicants are normally required to provide original documentation (generally this refers to academic transcripts only but other documents may be required depending on the course in question) before they are allowed to complete enrolment procedures.
Entrants who have graduated from institutions (other than UCD) should provide the following:

  • The original hard-copy academic transcripts, specifying the subjects studied and the grades attained, from the issuing educational institution/awarding body or, alternatively, a secure link to an online verification system provided by that institution/awarding body.
  • Entrants whose first language is not English should also provide proof of English language proficiency.
  • Any documentation not in English should be accompanied by an official English translation.
  • Uploaded soft-copies , certified hard-copies, Garda stamped copies, original degree parchments* etc. are not acceptable in this regard.
    *(i.e. this cannot be substituted for the transcript)

These documents can be presented by either of the following methods.

Post them to:

UCD Applications - Verification,
Tierney Building,
University College Dublin, Belfield, Dublin 4, Ireland;
Make sure you include your student number.

Applicants from the Republic of Ireland who wish to have their original documentation returned should forward a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Applicants from outside the Republic of Ireland should forward a self-addressed envelope along with the appropriate reply coupon - Universal Postal Union coupons are available in most countries. Information about the cost of postage in Ireland can be obtained from An Post. If originals are received in the absence of a self-addressed envelope they will be archived in line with the UCD Applications Records Management Policy: Alternatively students can collect their documents at the Student Desk compliant to the time conditions set out in the Applications Records Management Policy.


Bring them in person to the Student Desk, Tierney Building, UCD, Belfield, Dublin 4 at any time during opening hours.

In the majority of cases your transcripts will then be verified and returned to you on the spot. If this is not possible, due the volume of documentation received on any given day, a time will be arranged when you can return to collect them.
