Anyone aged 22 or more on January 1st of their year of entry to UCD Access may apply for the course. This is so that you will meet the age requirement of being at least 23 on January 1st when starting an undergraduate degree. There is no upper age limit.
There are no formal educational entry requirements to the Access course. What we need to know about you is your life experience and any formal or informal learning you have undertaken previously. Give us as much information as you think relevant.
Evidence of recent prior learning is most relevant in an application, ability in maths, and prior learning in at least one of the science subjects is important.
The purpose of this pathway is to provide an access route to those who have not yet had the opportunity to attend university. Those without a Level 8 degree will be prioritised.
