University College Dublin (UCD) welcomes students participating in the Brazilian Science without Borders programme to study abroad at the largest and most diverse university in Ireland. In the 2015/16 academic year 117 students from Brazil will be studying at UCD through Science without Borders Initiative, through academic programmes in Architecture, Agriculture & Food Science, Engineering and Science. From the total, 88 studied English Language in preparation for entering a UCD academic programme in 2015. The UCD International team will support you before you leave home, when you first arrive and throughout your time at UCD. Our aim is for you to get the most out of your experience academically, culturally and socially.

You can register for two modules per semester outside your subject area. You will be pre-registered for modules before you arrive at UCD and in most cases, you will have up to two weeks after the start of term to change your modules.  Average weekly course-load: 12 lecture hours.
