Undergraduate Entry Requirements

Students who have graduated from the Thai High School / Mathayom 6 are invited to apply for our International Foundation Year as a pathway to UCD degrees. Alternatively, we can only consider students who have completed 1 or 2 years of a degree in a recognised Thai university for stage 1 entry to UCD.

For students who have completed an international examination such as A Level or the IB, please see entry requirements here

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. 

For information on all recognised exams please visit the English Language Requirements website, or contact southeastasia@ucd.ie

UCD International Foundation Programme

If you have completed Mathayom 6 or iGCSEs you can choose our one year Foundation pathways to Business, Economics and Social Sciences or Engineering and Sciences. Please find more information here: International Foundation Year or click the image below.

Apply Direct

You can apply direct to the university at www.ucd.ie/apply. You will be required to pay an application fee of €50 and asked to fill out an online form and upload your documents. You will be informed what documents you need to upload once you have selected your course. 

Apply with an approved Agent

You can apply for UCD through one of our approved agents. Please see the list of approved agents below, under Agents in Your Country. There is no application fee if you apply through an approved agent, and they can assist you with your application, scholarship, paying your fees, your visa and making your arrangements to come to UCD.

Documents for your application

Typically Undergraduate applications require:

- Copies of your high school grades and certificates (A-Level, IB, etc)

- Your English language certificate 

Some courses may require additional documents such as references or personal statements. Please refer to your online application for specific document requirements. Please see above for information on course entry requirements and English language requirements. 

Applying before you have your final results

You can apply before you have your final high school exam results. We recommend you apply using your predicted or forecasted results, which you can obtain from your school. We can issue conditional offers based on predicted results, and then will require your final grades once they are available.
