Best University in Ireland for International Undergraduate Students

UCD is one of the world's top universities according to the 2021 World University Rankings, and is also ranked in the top 1% of higher education institutions worldwide.

We are also one of the best universities in Ireland for international undergraduate students. One of the reasons is that UCD is the most international university in Ireland with 8,500 international students. There are many other reasons why international undergraduate students choose UCD when they are searching for the best unversities to study abroad in Ireland.

The flexibility of the UCD curriculum gives you opportunities to broaden your learning in ways that other Irish universities cannot match. This is provided through the UCD Horizons programme, which allows students to explore areas beyond the scope of their degree programmes. The university will guide you through your choices, helping to set you on your own learning path.
