University College Dublin (UCD) is Ireland’s global university and most popular destination for international students. Home to over 34,000 students, 29% of our students come from outside of Ireland. Ranked in the top 1% of higher education institutes worldwide, we are located in one of the safest and most welcoming cities in the world. Near to the bustling city centre which is home to Ireland’s main business and tech hub, at UCD you will enjoy a beautiful, spacious campus where world class degree programmes and research sit alongside a wide array of clubs, societies, sporting facilities, on-site student residences and woodland walkways.

UCD has a long and proud history of engaging with India with one distinguished former student, V.V. Giri, going on to become the fourth president of India. Indeed we encourage all our students to “Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow” and our graduates are consistently ranked highly by global employers and enjoy excellent job prospects.

UCD offers me all the resources I need to make a real difference in the world. I want to contribute to a sustainable future through my research and education, and UCD is the best university to help me achieve this. Having known the contribution UCD has made to Ireland and the world through the quality of education, I wanted to discuss, learn and compete with other innovative minds in a dynamic learning environment, with the best and most expert professors.
