UCD - The Right University for International Students
University College Dublin offers a unique journey of academic and personal discovery to international students seeking to study in Europe. The breadth and flexibility of the UCD curriculum gives you opportunities to broaden your learning in ways that other Irish universities cannot match.
International students tell us that they love the flexibility of the UCD curriculum. This is provided through the UCD Horizons programme, which allows students to explore areas beyond the scope of their degree programmes. In UCD, every programme has Core and Option modules. UCD Horizons gives you the opportunity to take additional modules called Electives in areas that interest you. This means that you can adapt your degree to your personal preferences. The university will guide you through your choices, helping to set you on your own learning path.
