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.
An applicant who accepts a transfer place ceases to be a student of the previous programme (this includes acceptance via CAO). Internal transfers who change their mind about the new acceptance within the first three weeks of the trimester may be permitted to change back to the original programme, subject to availability of places and with the agreement of Admissions and all relevant Governing Boards.
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.
