UCD World Access to Higher Education Day: Celebrating 70 Years of Lifelong Learning

UCD’s celebration of World Access to Higher Education Day on Tuesday, 26th November 2019, 10-12 noon, marking the University’s 70 year-long tradition in lifelong learning.

In Newman’s time, evening public lectures were offered “with a view to opening the advantage of the University to the furthest possible extent”.

Today, UCD continues this commitment through an expanded and reimagined lifelong learning programme now offered in association with a wide range of cultural institutions, including dlr LexIcon, National Library, Hugh Lane Gallery, Collins Barracks, National Gallery. This commitment is underpinned and recognised by our designation as an Age-friendly University.

This event will be officially opened by Professor Andrew Deeks and include the announcement of the recipients of the UCD See One Be One Awards 2019.
