    LOCATION
  Dublin, Ireland
Dublin is friendly, welcoming and safe city with many accolades including UNESCO city of literature. Dublin has also been named by Lonely Planet as one of its top 10 cities in the world to visit in 2016. UCD is located on a leafy and spacious campus south of Dublin city center. From the campus you can venture to downtown Dublin, to the hip and edgy neighbourhoods of Ranelagh and Rathmines or to the coastal villages of Sandymount and Blackrock within 20 minutes. A little more time will take you to the Dublin mountains, to the stunning fishing village of Howth or to the beautiful, rugged and ancient surroundings of Glendalough. 
 
 
    STUDENT LIFE
  Housing: The UCD Centre for Study Abroad facilitates and assists students with accommodation options. The university offers campus housing in dorms with both local and international students, often with 4-6 students per house with single occupancy rooms. If students wish to apply for housing, they have to complete the booking process. Only a few dorms offer meal plans, therefore it is likely that you will have to shop and cook independently. Students will book their on campus accommodation online in advance of arrival. They will be informed by email from UCD of the dates the booking system will be open. Accommodation is offered on a first come first served basis. If students fail to meet the on-campus accommodation office deadlines, they will lose their place on-campus. 
Student Life: The UCD Centre for Study Abroad organizes many trips and activities to help you succeed while abroad and explore the country. You may also join student clubs and organizes for a nominal fee. A sampling of clubs include: International Students Society, Dance, Dramatic, LGBTQ+, Traditional Music, Music, Mountaineering, Surfing, Sailing, Gaelic Football and Hurling, American Football, and more.

On-Site Support: Students directly enroll at UCD and therefore have access to on-site staff. Whether it be academic concerns, housing issues, well-being, or safety, the staff is available to fully support students. 

    OTHER INFORMATION
  Estimated Program Price: When you study abroad for a semester or a year for academic credit, you will be charged tuition by Washington University at a rate equivalent to tuition on campus for the corresponding time period. WU tuition covers only the educational and administrative costs of the study abroad program. WU tuition does not cover any study abroad program costs for room, board, transportation, personal expenses, passport or visa fees. Such costs are charged separately either by WU, the program sponsor, or a third party. Scroll to the top and select the appropriate term under "Budget Sheets" to view estimated program expenses. 

Orientation: All students participating in Olin semester programs are required to enroll and participate in pre-departure (INTL 300A, 0.5 credit) and post-departure (INTL300B, 0.5 credit online while abroad) coursework. A non-credit pre-departure orientation will be required for all students on fall programs. An on-site orientation involves a session run by UCD International for all study abroad students, and an advisory session in the School of Business to go through the policies, procedures, rules and regulations in the School of Business.
 
Visas & Immigration: In the past, Ireland has not required U.S. citizens to apply for a visa prior to entering the program. However, a valid passport is required and immigration law is always changing; students must research the most current immigration requirements.  If you are not a U.S. national, you may need a visa.  Visa applications are made on-line using the AVATS on-line facility. Completing the on-line application form is the first step. The application will only be processed when the on-line form is completed AND the required documentation, passport photograph and appropriate fee are received by the relevant office as indicated by the on-line system. Further details can be obtained from the Irish Embassy or Consulate. Students should research the process immediately upon admission to the program. Given the differences for each country and student status, coordinators are limited in their ability to offer visa guidance. See the Global Programs handbook for more details.  Due to the length of the program, after entering the country it is necessary to register with the GNIB which costs approximately 300 euro. Students are responsible for paying for and making this appointment and are aided by the UCD Centre for Study Abroad in doing so.
