Erasmus Programme

Erasmus exchanges are links between academic Schools or Departments. The UCD School of Sociology is currently developing new exchange partnerships, please access the International Office website to see our current opportunities.

Each year a number of UCD Sociology students go to universities to study for the academic year and students from other universities come to study sociology in UCD.

Questions about the academic side of Erasmus exchanges with UCD School of Sociology can be directed to its Erasmus Coordinator Paul Stokes. General queries may be directed to the internships, Internsationalisation and Marketing Co-ordinator Rachel Mc Evoy at the School of Sociology  administrative office.

Answers to more detailed questions can be found on or by contacting UCD International Office.
