Select coursework across six colleges: Arts & Humanities; Business, Engineering, and Architecture; Health and Agricultural Sciences; Science; and Social Sciences and Law. Students can opt to take a full course load at UCD (five courses per semester) or combine UCD courses with CIEE electives, taught by adjunct lecturers at CIEE Dublin, located on Dublin City University’s All Hallows campus.
All courses are complemented with CIEE co-curricular activities and excursions beyond the city to enhance classroom learning and provide intercultural understanding.
