The School also has the only Environmental Policy specialism in Ireland, which has led to significant national and European success in attracting substantial research funds and international leadership and policy impact. UCD Planning is the longest established planning school in Ireland and a renowned centre of excellence and contributor to the European and global educational and research agenda. All four subject areas offer professionally accredited undergraduate and graduate programmes within a research-informed learning environment.

The School supports a positive research culture for its faculty and researchers through a collaborative and creative research environment that includes the UCD Centre for Spatial Dynamics and the UCD Centre for Irish Towns. The School faculty, having established reputations for both design excellence and the transfer of research to policy impact, maintain an international profile. All subject areas are physically located in the UCD Richview/Newstead precinct.
