Program Information:
Our Semester in Dublin program delivers the highest quality academic experience in one of Europe’s most exciting cities. Your host institution, Dublin City University, is modeled on the U.S. university system. You’ll have fantastic on-campus facilities and diverse course offerings to meet your requirements. After class, walk the cobblestone streets of Dublin, dine in lovely cafés, and pop into a pub for traditional Irish music. When you study abroad in Dublin, you’ll meet friendly local students and fall in love with Irish history, tradition, and the subtle sophistication of this incredible city.


Enjoy living in Dublin, as well as the following: 

  • One of Ireland's youngest and most progressive universities
  • Study opportunities with both Irish and international students
  • Numerous social events, activities, and cultural excursions throughout the program
  • Diverse course offerings, including technology, computer science, and STEM
  • Beautiful campus with great on-site facilities

Location:
For the largest city in Ireland, Dublin often feels like a small town with a big heart. Divided by the River Liffey, Dublin is indeed the cultural and commercial capital of the country. The city is also becoming a cultural center of Europe, and economic prosperity has attracted people from across the globe. Young people have flocked to the city; half of the population of “Dubs” is under 30 years old.

Despite the city's newfound multiculturalism, you'll still find the quintessential Irish experience you're seeking. On every corner, you can stroll into dusty, bustling pubs where musicians croon time-honored classics. The Irish aren’t stingy with their cultural treasures, and they love sharing a "chin-wag" (friendly conversation) with a perfect stranger. The resulting blend of old and new creates a vibrant atmosphere.

CISabroad students studying or interning in Dublin are spoiled for choice when it comes to activities. You can spend the day reading Oscar Wilde on St. Stephen’s Green or try your hand at hurling. Visit fantastic museums (most of which are free) or window shop on Grafton St. Take in an All-Ireland Gaelic Football Final at Croke Park or criss cross the many bridges over the River Liffey. Come evening, explore the Temple Bar area or seek out the best traditional music. Once you have a Leap Card, Dublin's public transportation is easy to navigate.

Look forward to meeting your new friends at The Spire and delving into everything Dublin offers. You're going to love your Irish home.
