Ad Astra Academic Scholarships are offered to students entering UCD with 6 Higher Level A1s in a single sitting of the Leaving Cert. For full details see www.ucd.ie/adastraacademy/academic
Applicants who achieve 560 points or above are termed Entrance Scholars as a recognition of their achievement. The Entrance Scholar award does not have a financial value but the achievement of these students is recognised at a ceremony in O’Reilly Hall each November, where students are presented with a certificate. The award is recorded on their academic transcript.
