Program Description:
University College Dublin - Health Sciences Summer Program

Our Health Sciences Summer School runs each year from the second week in June for a duration of either two (application code CT26) or four week (application code CT28), depending on the courses that students choose to take. In 2020 the Summer School starts on 8 June 2020 in the vibrant city of Dublin.  Students stay on campus and have the option of taking one or two taught courses from the following options:

An Introduction to Health Systems (5 ECTS)

 From 8 June to 19 June 2020 students will attend class on campus in UCD.  Students return home and engage online with further material before submitting their assignments.

Critical Appraisal of Research For Healthcare (5 Credits)

From 8 June to 19 June 2020 students will attend class on campus in UCD in a combination of large group lectures and smaller group work sessions. The third week of the module does not require attendance on campus. During this week, students will work autonomously to develop a portfolio of research evidence using a structured electronic workbook supplied with the course materials.

Critical Appraisal of Research for Healthcare (10 Credits)

From 8 June to 2 July  2020 students will attend class on campus in UCD in a combination of large group lectures and smaller group work sessions. During the third week of the module the students will work autonomously to develop a portfolio of research evidence using a structured electronic workbook supplied with the course materials. Also during this third week the students are required to attend two mentor-led group sessions in which the students will learn from their mentor’s experience and knowledge of an aspect of translating evidence into healthcare practice.

Grading Scale

Housing
We require that students live on campus in UCD during their programme. UCD hosts hundreds of students during the summer ensuring that there is always something happening on campus. You will have access to all of the facilities that UCD has to offer, its student centre, gym, cinema and shops. You can also explore the woodland walks that surround the 320 acre campus and enjoy the leafy environs every day.

You are also connected within twenty minutes to the city, and greater Dublin area, with the second largest bus hub in Ireland on your door step. Your UCD housing will be shared with fellow students in apartments comprising four individual bedrooms with two shared bathrooms. Communal kitchens and living spaces are shared in each apartment with access to kitchen utensils and cooking facilities. Bed linen is supplied and changed weekly. You also have access to Wi-Fi (campus wide).

Students will receive further information regarding the accommodation booking procedure, after our application deadline and upon acceptance to the programme.
