Applicants from outside the EU

The definition of EU/Non-EU applicants is based on fee assessment criteria. If you are unsure whether you are an non-EU or EU applicant, please visit the fee assessment page. EU applicants presenting qualifications from Non-EU countries should contact us


How do I know if I am EU or non-EU?

  • Were you born outside the EU/EEA?
  • Have you, or your parents, lived outside the EU/EEA for 3 of the last 5 years?
  • Are you a non-EU/EEA National?
  • Have you previously attended a third–level institution (in Ireland or elsewhere)?

If you answered yes to any of these questions please see www.ucd.ie/fees  for information on the fees which will apply to you.


How do non-EU applicants apply?

If you are deemed to be a non-EU candidate for fees purposes, you should apply directly to UCD - see www.ucd.ie/global for more details.
