Information on the following will be provided via email, following your acceptance to the Duquesne in Dublin program:

Information on how to arrive to St. Michael's House from the airport will be given to you before your departure. It is important to remember that you will need a passport that is valid for at least 6 months beyond your anticipated return date or you will not be able to board the plane. Non-US or non-Canadian students should check UCD's website for information on student visas.

You will also receive information on registering for the Duquesne-required Ireland Uncovered and CLPR 351: Intercultural Awareness and Exploration courses, which you will take on-site at St. Michael's House. 

  • Dates of the pre-departure orientation.

Duquesne in Dublin Handbook and Policies
We encourage all accepted students to review in advance, preferably with their families, Duquesne in Dublin's Policies and Student Handbook. Duquesne students are ambassadors while studying abroad and are expected to uphold the Duquesne University Mission and Code of Conduct while abroad. This is imperative not only for the image of Duquesne abroad, but most importantly for the safety of our students in Dublin.
