UCD Open Learning gives you the opportunity to study a range of undergraduate modules in UCD. There are no entry requirements and the Open Learning modules are open to everyone. You can take any combination of modules for interest only (audit) or you can complete the course assessment (credit). Each module is worth 5 ECTS and you can then accumulate the module towards an award.

All students interested in taking a language module must attend the UCD Applied Language Centre (ALC) for language consultation. This is to ensure that you are registered to the right module for your language level. Registration to your chosen module will be provisional until language consultation has taken place. The ALC is located on the first floor of the Daedalus Building. Dates for Semester II language consultation will be confirmed in December 2016. For more information, please visit their website:
