Entry Requirements

The normal requirement is a second class honours degree, grade one (2:1). You should check the specific entry requirements for the course that you intend to apply for.  Some courses may require a higher standard for entry.  
For applicants who do not have the required minimal entry standard, a year-long qualifying course may be available.  In addition, many Master’s programmes have an associated Diploma course which, if passed at an appropriate honours level, may provide part of the necessary academic qualification for entry.

Credit may be awarded within a course for certificated or experiential prior learning, achieved outside of that course.  This is subject to Board approval.  Please see Recognition of Prior Learning Policy Document 

English Language Requirement

Courses in UCD are taught in English.  Applicants must achieve the minimum standard in a recognised English language test. Please note, some courses may require a higher standard for entry.  Please check the entry requirements of the course that you intend to apply for.
