This initiative, developed by the College of Arts and Humanities at University College Dublin and the Faculty of Arts at the University of Nottingham is the first College-to-College/ Faculty-to-Faculty MoU signed under the auspices of the Universitas 21 network.  The members are working together to explore research collaborations, graduate programmes, joint PhD supervision, and educational opportunities, including student mobility and enhancing the student experience.

University College Dublin and the University of Nottingham are two highly successful international research-led universities, who have worked closely together through an Arts and Humanities Collaboration since March 2018.

Shared research themes have been identified in both institutions, including Culture, Digital Humanities, British and Irish Identities, Medical Humanities, and Translation.  Collaborations are already ongoing between colleagues from both universities, particularly in Archaeology, Music, Modern Languages, and Philosophy. UCD and UoN have committed to strengthening this partnership through multi-disciplinary cooperation and collaboration across these faculties.
