Student Life

Demanding, Diverse, Extraordinary

When you choose UCD School of Medicine, you choose a demanding, diverse and extraordinary student experience.

For more than 150 years, we’ve been producing patient-focused, research-driven innovators. Our graduates experience the best that a modern healthcare education can offer; responsive, patient-focused curricula, taught at Ireland’s largest and most diverse network of academic and clinical sites by renowned experts in the field of medicine and medical science.

Friendship & Community

Your student experience at UCD is something that you will carry with you throughout your life and your career. That experience will be informed not just by the expertise that you will gain, but also by the bonds of friendship and community that will define your time with us.

We believe that a medical education and university life should offer far more than a qualification alone; we want you to graduate having experienced the full social and academic spectrum of college life.

A Life Less Ordinary

When you choose UCD, you choose more than a world-class healthcare education. You choose Ireland’s most diverse university, set in a world-leading campus of unrivalled social and cultural activity, with access to a network of international opportunities that will make your time here a truly formative and unforgettable experience.

When you choose one of our healthcare programmes, you choose a life less ordinary; one filled with opportunity, in which you will explore and progress the boundaries of human and scientific knowledge for the benefit of patients and society.
