Medicine Offer Holders
The following information is intended for current UCD Medicine Offer Holders.
Irish Medical degrees are registrable in Ireland and recognised internationally. Internship posts in Ireland for non-EU graduates cannot be guaranteed as the number and funding of intern posts is determined by the Irish health service and is not within the jurisdiction of Medical Schools in Ireland.
This does not affect US/Canadian graduates who normally return to North America immediately after their graduation to start their residencies.
All other non-EU citizens should check with the relevant medical licensing authorities to ensure that you are aware of the licensing requirements for graduates of Irish medical schools who wish to return to their home country to practice.
The tuition fees and deposit are specified in your official online offer letter. Instructions on how to pay your fees are available at the UCD Fees Website.
Students are required to pay a Healthcare Screening cost of €295. This is in addition to the tuition fees noted above (see Health Screening Information).
To complete the acceptance process please remit your non-refundable* deposit, as per the terms in your offer letter.
Please note that if you do not pay your deposit by the deadline, your offer will lapse. The amount of the deposit and the due date are not negotiable.
*The deposit is non-refundable except where conditions of offer are not met or where a visa is refused**. In such cases an administrative charge of €500 will apply. These conditions are particular to Medicine and supersede UCD Refunds Policy.
** In addition, you must have shown genuine intent to study at UCD but were unable to obtain a visa. Late or delayed visa submissions will not be considered.
US Department of Education regulations do not permit universities to disburse any student loans more than 10 days before the start of the academic year. The first disbursement may not be more than 50% of the total loans taken for the year.
Eligible students whose offer letters state that the balance of their tuition fees are due before 1 July have the option of submitting an application for Federal Student Loans as instructed on the UCD Federal Aid website. Where a complete and eligible Federal Aid application has been received by 1 July, students’ tuition fees will be paid with each semesterly disbursement of loans and students do not need to pay the balance of their fees by 1 July.
An application for Federal Student Aid does not exempt a student from paying the deposit as outlined on the online offer letter.
Deferred entry is not possible for clinical programmes including Medicine.
