Arcadia apply online buttonStudy at University College Dublin
Faculty of Arts

Ireland University College Dublin Campus University College Dublin (UCD) combines the excitement of living in Dublin with the convenience of studying at a suburban campus. With 20,000 students on its 300 acre site located only 3 miles from the center of Dublin, UCD offers the housing, entertainment, and recreational facilities you expect to find on a campus.

Located in the Republic's capital, UCD is the largest of the colleges which forms the National University of Ireland. Besides its favorable location and vibrant campus life, the University has other excellent features. You'll appreciate that UCD follows a semester calendar similar to that of many U.S. colleges and universities. This means you'll finish your studies in time to be home for the holidays during the fall semester and for the start of summer vacation during the spring semester.  

At UCD, you'll be able to pursue focused study in two departments within the University's Faculty of Arts. Some of the subjects you can choose from include history, English literature, languages, politics, economics, geography, classical studies, music, philosophy, sociology and social policy, and mathematics and statistics. You'll take six courses per semester earning 15 semester hours of credit. One restriction at UCD is that you will be expected to take all of your courses at the same level-either second or third-year.

Arcadia Advantage

We encourage you to contact your program manager for advice on the application process, choosing courses, or simply what you  should pack. Once you arrive in Ireland, our resident director will lead an orientation program in Dublin that will introduce you to the culture, history and politics of Ireland as well as preparing you for the academic challenges of studying in a different educational system.
