Partnerships in action
UCD sees partnerships and collaborations as an area of innovation. The university has both traditional partnership models as well as partnerships that break new ground. Examples of UCD’s innovative approach to collaborations include:
RCSI & UCD Malaysia Campus (RUMC) (formerly Penang Medical College), Malaysia, offers students a unique medical programme where they study in both Malaysia and Ireland. It is wholly-owned by UCD and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI), and became the 10th institution awarded Foreign University Branch Campus status in Malaysia in 2018.
Beijing-Dublin International College (BDIC) is a collaborative partnership, that offers dual-degree programmes in Beijing, directly overseen by UCD and Beijing University of Technology (BJUT).
BCL/Maîtrise Law Dual Degree Programme leads to the award of an Irish Law Qualification (BCL) and a French primary law degree (Maîtrise en Droit or Master 1), together with the University Panthéon-Assas (Paris II).
