UCD Global Centres

Our UCD Global Centres are located in New York, Beijing, Delhi and Kuala Lumpur to support the university's extensive strategic relationships in North America, China, India and SE Asia. The UCD Global Centres provide an accessible first point of contact for high schools, partner institutions, students and parents in the local time zone. Importantly they also provide a base for the development of a network of productive and sustainable partnerships, along with increasing awareness of the opportunities that UCD can offer as ‘Irelands Global University’.

Over time the objectives of the Centres will extend further; forging broader collaborations in education and supporting UCD students in their mobility to study and undertake work placements in region; supporting the development of new research collaborations and networks; identifying and leveraging new sources of collaborative research funding, and communicating the impact of research at UCD, globally and in the region to further expansion of strategic partnerships in region; developing innovation and enterprise links; and giving us better opportunity to connect with alumni.
