    • Ireland's version of University Malaya, UM (the buildings, the students' lifestyle, etc) - so say the Malaysian students

    • Dated from 150 years ago, established in 1854

    • Has produced graduates of remarkable distinction including famous surgeons, architects, entrepreneurs and five of Ireland’s Taoisigh (Prime Ministers). Perhaps the best known of all its graduates is the writer James Joyce, who completed his Bachelor of Arts at the university in 1902

    • It used to be located at the heart of the city in St Stephen's Green, however moved to a bigger area in Belfield to accomodate the college's phenomenal growth during the 1960's and 1970's

  • Its Health Science Complex (which is one of the venue for symposium!!), designed by the Murray O'Laoire Architects, had won awards (the Best Educational Building and Best sustainable Projects) for its modern, time forward and fresh designs!
