Visiting UCD

UCD welcomes many international visitors each year, including representatives from existing partner institutions, potential new partners, Ambassadors and senior political figures. Everyone is guaranteed a warm reception as we welcome the new perspective that they each bring.

Intending official visitors are asked to complete a Visit Request Form. It is important that the form is completed online at least 4 weeks before the date of the prospective visit. The International Relations Office will then liaise within the University to match visit requests with University personnel and advise the sender of the outcome of the request. Although all requests are considered carefully, the University is unable to service all requests.

Visiting UCD - Checklist

    • 1. Complete Visit Request Form

      We ask that you please submit the visit request form 4 weeks prior to your visit. The form should include the following information:
      Details of the delegation (names and positions).
      The scheduled arrival and departure dates of your visit.
      Details of the topics you are interested in (The more details are provided the better we can support you in organising your programme).

    • 2. Assessment and Confirmation

      The UCD Global Partnerships team will assess the visit/delegation request and liaise with relevant units to determine interest and availability.
      We hope you will understand that any appointments we can arrange depend on the availability of the staff in the departments, organisations, and institutions you are interested in.

    • 3. Preparation and Follow-Up

      The UCD Global Partnerships team will keep in contact in relation to the itinerary and the arrival details in advance of your visit and will assist with follow-up after your departure.
