We always enjoy welcoming students to Dublin – we have welcomed Erasmus students from the Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Tenerife and the Canary Islands and Fulbright Students from North America.

We run public lectures across the academic year – to keep up to date with what we are doing, join us on Facebook and Twitter.
