Comprising more than 2,000 full-time enrollments and representing 30 different nationalities, our large and culturally diverse student community is the heartbeat of the School.
Our students are active college citizens, participating in the many social and community events which are on offer at Ireland's largest University. The more established students act as peer mentors for those in earlier years. Many are orientation guides for first year student in the first semester or tour guides for 5th and 6th Year second level students contemplating study at UCD.
Our students support each other through the demanding academic programme and forge bonds with each other and with the School that remain throughout their careers. Each student has his or her own particular reason for choosing their programme of study, and thanks to the innovative UCD Horizons initiative each can customise their degree to suit their personal and career goals.
We invite you to meet Roisin McGrath (Stage 4), Sarah Shanahan (Stage 5), Shauna Galligan (Stage 2) and Ned Quirke (Stage 4), Undergraduate Entry Medicine and find out more about studying medicine at UCD and the opportunities and supports on offer during the six years of the programme and enjoying a full and vibrant life on campus. Please note that Roisin, Sarah, Shauna and Ned were interviewed for this video in August 2020 and all the footage reflecting campus life was filmed before the pandemic.
