Why Study with UCD Online?

UCD Online offers prospective students a flexible alternative to receiving a third level qualification delivered and supported by the same world class academics that teach in University College Dublin. There is no difference between qualifications achieved through UCD campus or UCD Online and students can look forward to the same quality teaching albeit through online delivery enabled by modern technologies. UCD Online's Module to Masters pathway increases the flexibility of study options by allowing students to complete a course in a time frame that suits their own personal circumstances, without incurring additional course fees.

The courses offered by UCD Online have been carefully selected to satisfy both student and employer demands. The offerings are diverse and focused towards producing high quality graduates in a chosen field, who are equipped with the necessary skills to gain employment in a given sector. Each course descriptor gives an overview of where a student’s new skill may take them in terms of both employment and academia. Over time, more UCD campus based offerings will be delivered through UCD Online as well as a host of new UCD Online exclusive courses.

Since all UCD Online students are members of the UCD community they each obtain a UCD student card providing them access to UCD Services such as the library, sports centre and other campus/online facilities and services. Student discounts are available from numerous entertainment and retail outlets. UCD Online students are also given opportunities to visit campus including upon successful completion of a degree course when they will be invited to a graduation ceremony amongst their UCD Online and campus-based peers.
