UCD Applications


  1. All offers of admission are subject to these terms and conditions. Offers of admission do not become legally binding on the university or the candidate until the candidate undertakes formal online registration at the commencement of his/her academic programme.

  2. Whether applying via CAO or direct to UCD, it is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that the application is submitted accurately and on time. It is the responsibility of applicants to provide full and accurate information in an application and to notify the University of any changes or corrections to the original application.

  3. UCD may request verification from the issuing authority of any or all details on documentation presented. If documents are found to have been falsified the issuing body will be notified.

  4. An offer of admission, will be made in good faith taking into account information as supplied by the applicant and/or referee at the time of the application. Any offer of admission is made without prejudice to the right of the University to vary or withdraw it if information comes to the notice of the University (whether relating to events occurring before or after the date of the offer) which could reasonably have influenced the University's decision if known at the time the offer was made. The University reserves the right to withdraw an offer of a place, or terminate a student's enrolment, if it discovers subsequently that the student has given false information in their application or has provided false or fraudulent documentation in support of their application.

  5. The University reserves the right to exclude a candidate who is considered on justifiable grounds to be unsuitable for a place on a particular programme according to individual circumstances.

  6. The University reserves the right to withdraw, vary or amend any aspect of an offer of admission if it is found that an error or mistake has been made by the University.

  8. A programme may be cancelled due to lack of demand or due to the unavailability of key personnel or resources. If UCD cancels the programme prior to the student commencing the first term of study, the student may either:

    a. withdraw from UCD without any liability for fees, or

    b. transfer to another programme offered by UCD, subject to suitable qualifications, availability of places, payment by the student of the balance of any higher fees, and the Dean’s approval.

  9. Information on academic programmes and courses or any other arrangement including fees, location, staffing, class sizes and timetabling are an expression of the University’s intentions only and do not constitute a firm offer of undertaking. All such details are subject to change.
