Undergraduate applicants who have previously attended (but not completed) third level qualifications are covered by the Transfer Policy.
If they wish to apply for admission to first year of a new course, they apply via CAO (with the exception of start of stage 1 transfers). They must declare their previous third level attendance. Certain restrictions may apply.
If they are seeking advanced standing, they apply direct to UCD. Closing dates and procedures are available on the main transfer page www.ucd.ie/transfer.
Non-EU entrants apply via UCD Global, regardless of which year they are seeking to enter. If admitted, they may apply for Recognition of Prior Learning. Current UCD non-EU students may apply to transfer between undergraduate programmes under the Transfer Policy, for entry mid-year in stage 1 and for entry to stage 2 (or later).
This page is intended for staff and covers the process between the Programme Areas and Admissions.
