Stage 2 Transfers - Indicative Places

 

Applications for transfer will open on 5 March with a closing date of 23 June 2021. There is no guarantee that there will be places available in any course or that any application will be successful. Availability of places is dependent on progression and retention of existing students. This page will be updated when applications open and will be subject to updates until 31 May 2021. Where places remain, late applications will be accepted between 4 - 11 August 2021 via the links below.

Notes:
- If you have already made an application use this link to access it.
- It is unusual for places to be available in 3rd or subsequent years, except for re-admission applicants.
- For a UCD degree to be awarded, University regulations stipulate that at least 50% of the overall programme credits must normally have been earned in UCD.
- Non-EU applicants contact UCD Global.

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.

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.
