Summer in Dublin
June 9 - July 8, 2018
Spend 4 weeks living & studying in Dublin!
Dublin is the capital city of Ireland. Its vibrancy, nightlife and tourist attractions are noteworthy, and it is the most popular entry point for international visitors to Ireland. The city’s heart is divided north-south by the River Liffey, with O’Connell’s Bridge connecting the two parts.
Eligibility & Admission Guidelines
Undergraduates from Tulane and other institutions with a 2.5 GPA grade point average (based on a 4.0 system) and non-degree seeking students are eligible to apply for admission.

Housing and Meals
Students will be housed in the UCD (University of College Dublin). The exceptionally well appointed residential accommodation at UCD is positioned discreetly throughout the college campus and at nearby Blackrock, a lively, friendly village on Dublin’s affluent south side, less than 2 miles from Belfield.
All accommodation has optionally available self-catering facilities, including kitchen, laundry and separate living rooms. Guests have the option of being totally self-sufficient during their stay with us, although it is comforting to know that there are extensive catering facilities on campus and close-by should they decide to eat out.
The residences at UCD are carefully integrated into their surrounding parkland setting and are very much low-density. Maintained to a very high standard, they are an ideal home from home for our summer visitors
And located just a few miles from the center of Dublin, you are perfectly placed to explore everything that this vibrant European capital has to offer.
Payment Terms & Schedule
Please make all payments promptly. No guarantee is given if payment is not received on time. A deposit of $300.00 is due with the application ($150.00 of which is a non-refundable application fee).
Registration & Scheduling
Registration is complete when all application materials and payments are received. Course scheduling is arranged on a first-come, first-served basis and is based on the student's course preference list. If a student's first choice class is full, courses will be assigned from a student's alternate list of courses. Classes are limited to 10 students per class maximum.
Students are required to take and maintain 6 hours on all Tulane Study Abroad summer programs offered through the Tulane Office of Study Abroad. Students are NOT permitted to take summer courses pass/fail.
A valid passport is required for all U.S. citizens traveling to Ireland. Requirements vary for other nationalities. International students should check the requirements for their respective countries. For US passport fees and instructions see the U.S. Department of State site: http://travel.state.gov/passport.
It is very important that you apply early for your US passport. The Tulane Office of Study Abroad assumes no responsibility for obtaining visas or assisting students with passports. Please contact the Office of Study Abroad if you need documentation indicating you are on a study abroad program.
Medical & International SOS
All students participating on Tulane Office of Study Abroad summer programs are covered by a comprehensive study abroad medical insurance policy provided through HTH International. This insurance is included in the cost of the program. The policy provides for accident, medical expenses, emergency medical evacuation, repatriation of remains, and family assistance coverage. The policy does not provide for trip cancellation or baggage loss. Students are also covered by International SOS. This assists students with various medical and safety needs as well as emergency needs such as emergency evacuation (for non-medical reasons) if necessary.

All effort will be made to accommodate but students should be aware that reasonable accommodation may be required.
