Undergraduate Entry Requirements

Academic Entry Requirements

Students who have graduated from Philippines High School exams are invited to apply for our International Foundation Year as a pathway to UCD degrees. Alternatively we can consider students who have completed 1 or 2 years of a Bachelor degree course at a recognised university for stage 1 entry. 

For students who have completed international examinations such as A-Levels or the IB, please see entry requirements here

Students who have completed a USA curiculum will also be considered but will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

 

English Language Requirements  

Teaching in Irish Universities is normally through the medium of English, therefore all applicants are required to demonstrate a high level of competence in English language. UCD accepts certificates in English language such as IELTS, TOEFL and other international examinations.
