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. Located in the Republic's capital, UCD is the largest of the colleges that collectively form the National University of Ireland. At UCD, you'll be able to pursue focused study in two departments within the University's Faculty of Arts.
