UCD for ALL Student Experience

UCD Access & Lifelong Learning works with a number of secondary schools, further education colleges, comunity groups, adult learners and other linked institutions located in Ballyfermot, Crumlin, Clondalkin, Greenhills, Tallaght, South Dublin, Bray, Enniscorthy, Wexford, Wicklow, and Laois. 

Each year we invite many of the people we work with to spend a day at UCD experiencing student life with a current undergraduate student. In 2021 the Student Experience is virtual - our current students and faculty have created a number of short videos so you can learn more about studying a range of programmes at UCD.
