The definition of EU/Non-EU applicants is based on fee assessment criteria. If you are unsure whether you are an non-EU or EU applicant, please visit the fee assessment page. EU applicants presenting qualifications from Non-EU countries should contact us
How do I know if I am EU or non-EU?
- Were you born outside the EU/EEA?
- Have you, or your parents, lived outside the EU/EEA for 3 of the last 5 years?
- Are you a non-EU/EEA National?
- Have you previously attended a third–level institution (in Ireland or elsewhere)?
If you answered yes to any of these questions you should undertake a fee assessment at https://www.ucd.ie/students/fees/eufeeassessment/ which will determine whether you are eligible for EU fees.
How do non-EU applicants apply?
If you are deemed to be a non-EU candidate for fees purposes, you should apply directly to UCD - see www.ucd.ie/global for more details.
