Globalisation is one of UCD’s key strategic initiatives. To deliver on this initiative, this ambitious strategy sets out to further enhance UCD’s international culture, grow its global reputation and increase the impact of their excellence in scholarship, research and innovation on key global issues.

The realisation of UCD’s global ambitions will be supported by their Global Centres and their extensive network of partners worldwide.

Operating in a dynamic competitive global market will require flexible and agile operations. UCD will further extend their reach, and strengthen their relationships, in areas where UCD has excellence and scale to deliver impact.

UCD is Ireland’s most global university but it has the capacity and ambition to become a world-leading global university. The passionate commitment and engagement of the UCD community and their partners will help UCD build on their current strengths to realise their global engagement ambitions.
