About University College Dublin
University College Dublin has its origins in the mid-nineteenth century under the leadership of the renowned educationalist John Henry Cardinal Newman. Since its foundation in 1854, the University has flourished and made a unique and substantial contribution to the creation of modern Ireland, based on successful engagement with Irish society on every level and across every sphere of activity. UCD is one of Europe’s leading research-intensive universities; an environment where undergraduate education, masters and PhD training, research, innovation and community engagement form a dynamic spectrum of activity. The international standing of UCD has grown in recent years; it is currently ranked within the top 1% of institutions world-wide. UCD is also Ireland’s most globally engaged university with over 30,000 students drawn from over 120 countries, and includes 5,500 students based at locations outside of Ireland. The University’s main Dublin campus occupies an extensive parkland estate of more than 130 hectares and offers world-leading facilities including the UCD O’Brien Centre for Science, UCD Sutherland School of Law, UCD Lochlan Quinn School of Business and UCD Student Centre. As Ireland’s largest university, with its great strength and diversity of disciplines, UCD embraces its role to contribute to the flourishing of Ireland; through the study and discussion of people, society, business, economy, culture, languages and the creative arts, as well as through research and innovation. The University’s Strategy 2015-2020 outlines the objectives and major strategic initiatives set in place in order to accomplish UCD’s mission and vision for this era.

Irish Educational System
Children in Ireland must attend school from age six to sixteen unless they have completed three years of second-level education.  The education system is made up of primary school, secondary school (high school) and then third level or a university to obtain a degree. 

In primary school they attend school from 9am to 3pm, and in secondary schools 9am to 4pm.  In secondary schools they generally have eight or nine 30-40 minute lessons and are allowed to go home for lunch because schools do not provide it.  During Junior Certificate or Jr. high school students are required to take religious classes to learn about the text, it is the students choice whether they want to attend Masses for special events or not.

At the University in Ireland the grading is a bit different than that in the US.  The class is based on a few exams, assignments, presentations or papers and is generally out of 100 points.  Receiving a 44%-40% is an E which is not a passing grade, 49%-45% is a D, 59%-50% is a C, 69%-60% is a B and 70% or more is an A.  Receiving a 66 is seen as doing really well.
