What happens After I apply

Application Review Process

Your application will be assessed on the basis of the information on your application form and the supporting documentation that you provide. Some Programmes/Schools have specific application requirements and you may be required to attend for interview. It is important to include all required documents otherwise your application will be considered incomplete.

Application Status

You can check the progress of an online application by logging into your application account. You will receive an automated email alerting you of a change in the status of your application when a decision has been made.

Decision Process

UCD operates a rolling admissions policy for Graduate Taught Courses, with decisions being taken as soon as possible after receipt of completed applications. In general, courses will remain open until all places are filled. However, some programmes may have specific closing dates. Please consult the course coordinator for more details. For Graduate Research decisions, you will be contacted directly by the School.

Accepting a Place

Ensure your place on the course by accepting your offer. If you are accepting online, you may be asked to submit an enrolment deposit, normally €500. This deposit is applied towards your tuition fees.
