Am I eligible?
You need to be a current or previous UCD student applying on the basis of credits gained in UCD and have the following
|All the subject entry requirements for the course. If you didn't have these in your school-leaving exams, it may be possible to meet them from your university examinations.
|At least 50 relevant credits for each stage for which you are seeking exemption ( while meeting stage progression requirements in line with UCD regulations)|
|Your credits must include sufficient relevant modules for the new programme and stage.|
How many places are there?
The number of places is very small and is dependent on the numbers who have left during stage 1. For many programmes there will be no available places.
How will I be assessed?
Usually there are more applicants than available places. Admission is competitive and there is no guarantee that any application will be successful.
If you are eligible you will be assessed on the basis of the compatibility of your modules and overall academic performance in UCD. The assessment may also include your school-leaving results or other relevant criteria.
How do I apply?
Open the list of courses with places available (not all courses will open) and use the link beside the appropriate course.
After the closing date, all complete submitted applications will be screened by Admissions. Applications which meet the minimum requirements (as outlined above in the "Am I Eligible?" section) will be sent to the College/School Offices for consideration by the relevant Programme Board. Incomplete applications or applications that do not meet the minimum requirements cannot be considered.
Applications open on Wednesday, 12 April 2023. The closing date is Wednesday, 21 June 2023. Incomplete applications will not be considered - your application, including application fee, must be submitted by the closing date.
If your result won't be out by the closing date, you should enclose any results already available with a note saying when the final result is expected. Your result must be forwarded ASAP. As applications are assessed soon after the closing date, if you are awaiting results you will only be considered if places remain following initial offers.
Subject to availability of places, late applications may be considered between 10 and 17 August 2023. Please note that registration starts from mid-August so any successful late applicants are likely to be late joining registration processes.
If you are considering applying for a transfer, please check the fees implications at www.ucd.ie/fees.
Some programmes will not normally consider applicants who have been unsuccessful in a similar programme - full details are on the restrictions page.
All offers of a place are subject to UCD's Terms and Conditions of Offer. In line with the Admissions Policy, offers for taught programmes will not be made after the third week of a trimester. Deferral or Leave of Absence is not permissible for the trimester following acceptance of a transfer/re-admission offer.
In some cases, students may wish to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning in addition to that granted by the transfer process (see Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) policy).
All students must comply with the regulations of the University.
The above is summary information only. Full regulations are included in the Transfer Policy.
