UCD Academics


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 options 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 Art & Humanities Program.  Whereas a student who is taking 3-4 Business courses and 1-2 Arts would apply to the Business Programs and so on.  This is important to note as you must take the majorities of the modules (class) from the programme to apply to.
