ALL Welcome 2023

After much planning, the  biggest event in our calendar, the ALL Welcome 2023 was a huge success. A fun-filled day on the UCD campus, the ALL Welcome gave students the perfect opportunity to meet their fellow Access & Lifelong Learning students and kickstart the UCD adventure.

As the sun finally emerged, the cygnets made their first outings onto the UCD lakes, and we began to enjoy our lunchtime Walks and Talks without additional raincoats and umbrellas - thoughts were turning to our favourite event of the year: our ALL Welcome 2023. With over 800 students from HEAR, DARE, Mature, QQI-FET, and part-time pathways gathering onto campus for workshops, talks, and a UCD-wide treasure hunt, we almost doubled the success of last September's Welcome, where 450 students attended!

We'll be back next year to welcome a whole new cohort of students. Watch this space for more information!
