Study Abroad opportunities at the UCD School of Earth Sciences

Study Abroad students are invited to take one or two semesters at University College Dublin and to include modules offered by UCD School of Earth Sciences.

We also offer special negotiated modules for Study Abroad Students. These modules are designed in collaboration with individual Faculty staff at UCD to ensure field and/or laboratory research training at an level appropriate to a student’s prior experience and in a subject of interest. We offer a broad spectrum of taught modules, ranging from introductory and general interest Level 1 modules to specialised Level 4 modules.

The UCD Science Study Abroad website includes information on the application process, facilities and the study abroad research module, along with testimonials from recent students.
