Study abroad students register as Visiting Students and can take up to five modules (classes) per semester at UCD.
Study Abroad students have a full range of undergraduate modules and have the option to register for four modules within their main program (this is the program you are applying for i.e. Arts, Business, Science, etc.) and up to two additional modules from across the university. For example, if a student is taking 3-4 courses in Arts and 1-2 business they would apply to the Arts & Humanities Program. Whereas a student who is taking 3-4 Business courses and 1-2 Arts would apply to the Business Program and so on. This is important to note as you must take the majority of the modules (classes) from the programme to which you apply.

STYI: Study Abroad Ireland course place holder and
HIST 267: Ireland Uncovered (3 Credits)
This course provides an overview of Irish history from the arrival of Christianity up to modern times. Taking a documents-based approach, the course will explore the complexities, themes and modern-day relevance of major issues and events in Irish history such as the plantations, penal laws, the famine, independence, partition, and the outbreak of the Northern Irish troubles in the 1960s and ‘70s. In covering the waves of conquest, conflict, migration, and settlement that have shaped the political and social composition of modern Ireland, the course aims to situate Ireland within the context of European and wider history. Additionally, aspects of Irish culture will be explored through examinations of sport, music, and literature in their modern context.
