About The Program

At the University College Dublin, one of the most widely recognized schools for chemistry, you'll fulfill two quarters of organic chemistry in just eight weeks.

Program trips introduce Ireland's natural beauty and beguiling charm. Experience the legacy of the high kings at Trim Castle. See the ancient ceremonial site of Irish mythology, the Hill of Tara. Walk the rugged edge of the Cliffs of Moher and the Irish village of Howth.
