Dublin's cultural life is rich and varied, highlighted by many film and theater offerings including the renowned Dublin Theatre Festival, a two-week celebration of the best in Irish and international theater. With one of the youngest populations of Europe's major cities, Dublin offers an especially congenial atmosphere for students.
University College Dublin dates back to the Catholic University of Ireland, which was founded in the mid-nineteenth century. The present university was re-established as a secular institution in 1908 and now accommodates 20,000 students, including 2,000 international students. UCD's main campus is located just three miles south of the city center. The university is academically strong across all subject areas, especially the arts, sciences, and commerce.
All BC students are required to take an Irish Studies course taught by Dr. Leeann Lane. The class will carry three BC credits. It will be offered at a time to be announced and scheduled not to conflict with your other classes.
BC students will take a total of 30 ECTS (five UCD classes plus Leeann’s Irish Studies class).
Please consult the acceptance materials that UCD sends to you for the dates of the orientation. Plan to stay until the last exam date; you must remain for all of your exams.
