Ireland The Living Heritage

The UCD International Summer School continues the tradition, established more than half a century ago, of exploring aspects of Irish life, culture and history, with guidance from the university’s internationally-renowned faculty members.

University College Dublin – UCD – is Ireland’s largest university. It has been at the centre of Irish intellectual, cultural, political and economic life since its foundation 150 years ago. Today it enjoys international recognition as a centre of excellence in teaching and research, and its academic staff includes many scholars of worldwide renown.

The International Summer School, the oldest in Ireland, is a venerable institution within the university. Every year it welcomes people from all over the world who share an interest in Irish Studies and who wish to learn in the company of distinguished members of the university’s academic community. The Summer School’s extraordinary success over more than half a century reflects both the consistently high quality of its programmes and the very friendly learning environment that is UCD itself.
