Refunds Policy

  • For the duration of the COVID-19 emergency, in the event that a programme does not commence in September 2020, or that students* are unable to join the programme due to a COVID-19 related issue, they will be offered:
1. Their deposit to be refunded in full
or
2. A place in the next starting group of the programme, strictly with the agreement of the programmes governing school and in alignment with the university’s deferral protocol. Students unable to avail of this option in their chosen programme will be offered a full refund of their deposit.
  • For the duration of the COVID-19 emergency, the administrative charges referred to in section 2C and section 4 will be waived.
* As the timeline for EU undergraduate admissions is later in the year and no deposit is required, this does not refer to this cohort at this time.
This does not include where students have paid a deposit to a third party rather than UCD directly.
