Dublin International Study Centre

Study Group partnered with University College Dublin in 2011 to help the University meet the ambitious targets of its internationalisation strategy.

Working with Ireland's Global University 

Study Group’s partnership with University College Dublin (UCD) allows Ireland's largest and most international university to benefit from our global reach and attract students from all over the world.

UCD is among the top universities in the world, ranked 171st in the QS World University Rankings 2024. It has strong links with leading global companies, including 1,200 multinationals in Dublin. Students can enjoy excellent internships and career opportunities while studying in Dublin.

Dublin International Study Centre is located on the University campus and gives students full access to university facilities, including an Olympic-sized swimming pool, student societies, the Global Lounge and a wide range of accommodation. 

The International Foundation Year prepares students for entry into the first year of an undergraduate degree at UCD. All students benefit from a high-tech teaching environment and dedicated support, helping more students to reach the level they need for entry into UCD’s world-ranked courses.

International Study Centre programme:

  • International Foundation Year
  • English Language Preparation

"At the International Study Centre they guide you through your first year, step by step, which really helps you prepare for UCD. The teachers are very experienced in their fields and as the International Study Centre is small they're able to concentrate on individuals."
