Break*​ February 22-26, 2016​

The Official UCEAP Start Date is the day the program begins. It begins in Dublin, where you must arrive before noon AM on that day – that will give you sufficient time to go through Immigration at the airport, then travel into the city to your UCEAP orientation site. (Aer Lingus flights from LAX arrive in Dublin between 5:15am and 9:25am.) The mandatory UCEAP orientation begins at 3:00 PM on that day. If you arrive in Ireland before that day, you are responsible for your own accommodation and other costs. “Term II” below means the same as Spring semester – it may also be called “Hilary Term and Trinity Term” in Irish academic calendars. (Be sure to purchase a changeable return flight ticket because you do not yet know the exact dates of your final exams.)  TBC in the calendars below means To Be Confirmed.
