Third Year Core Abroad

University College Dublin
Dublin, Ireland

Third year McIntire students:
After completing the online Education Abroad Workshop on this website,
apply to the "UVA Commerce: Semester Abroad" program, not to the specific program.

 

Program Overview
The McIntire School of Commerce and the University College Dublin are offering third-year Commerce students an opportunity to study international business in Dublin during the spring semester of student's third year of study. The Quinn School of Business is one of the finest business schools in Europe and is housed in a beautiful, new building on the main Belfield campus, three miles south of Dublin’s colorful, historic center.

Curriculum
The curriculum is designed to provide the essentials of the courses you would have taken at McIntire during this semester, so you will not fall behind your classmates who do not study abroad. The skills you develop and the experiences you have in this program will surely be a very valuable part of your total UVA educational experience. UCD course offerings are extensive, and all Commerce students will find a good selection of courses that interest them.

Students registered in the third-year McIntire ICE curriculum at an approved study-abroad program are required to register for at least 12 (U.S.) credits at partner schools, along with 4.5 online credits taught by McIntire faculty. Courses completed at partner schools will be treated as transfer credit on the UVA transcript and must be completed with a C (satisfactory) or better to be eligible for transfer (grades are not transferred). To determine the minimum passing grade for non-U.S. grading scales, McIntire uses the World Education Services (WES) conversion chart.

Spring Academic Calendar
Mid January: Start of semester
Mid May: End of program

Application Process
Students must attend the McIntire information session and complete the online Education Abroad Workshop on this site. Students should then complete the online "UVA Commerce: Semester Abroad" application on this site.


Applications are due by noon on the deadline date. Once admission is approved, students will be required to complete a program-specific application packet and attend several orientation sessions later in the semester.

Housing
Dublin offers a choice between on-campus dormitory housing and apartments in the private sector in the city center. Although the private apartment will probably cost about $1,000 more than a dorm over the five-month semester, most visiting students find it is worth it to be living in the heart of one of the world’s great cities. The Quinn staff will help you find an apartment, if that is your choice.

Additional Information
This program is a direct enroll program, with tuition being paid to UCD. Students participating in this program will be responsible for the UVA Study Abroad Administrative Fee during the semester abroad. Detailed information about this fee can be found in the online Education Abroad Workshop.

When studying abroad all UVA students are required to have both basic international health coverage and emergency assistance coverage through the UVA-sponsored plan with CISI.
See the Insurance page on this website for more information about requirements. Additional information and details about the program can be found on the UCD website.
