The Access and Lifelong Learning Centre provide a Welcome Programme to all students entering UCD through an alternative pathway.

The Welcome Programme is an informative, supportive and fun programme, with lots of activities to help students feel more confident about starting in UCD.  It provides a great opportunity to get a head start in transitioning to third level. During the Welcome Programme students also receive further information about their Access Support Package.

It is important that students attend all elements of the Welcome Programme.  

The 2018 Welcome Programmes will take place between Sunday 26th August- Friday 7th September.  You will be notified of the exact dates of your Welcome Programme after you are offered a place at UCD.
