|Duration: 1 or 2 Semesters||
The UCD Quinn School Study Abroad Program is open to all undergraduate students outside the European Union. Students may attend for the Fall semester, the Spring semester or the full academic year. A range of over fifty modules are available from our Bachelor of Commerce Degree Programme (BComm), which is the leading undergraduate business degree in Ireland.
Business modules are taught by a series of formal lectures/classes together with a strong emphasis on course work outside of class, encompassing individual project work, group project work, computer skills, library work and class presentations. Each module is comprised of three hours of formal classes per week for a twelve-week Semester. There is a two-hour formal examination held at the end of each Semester.
In addition to the business modules, we also offer a special course which focuses on Irish History and Culture. Several field trips to places of historical significance in Ireland are an extra component of this course. Typically, Study Abroad Program students take four Business modules plus the required Irish History and Culture module per semester.
Modules are available in the following subject areas:

The list of Business modules for the autumn and spring semester for the academic year 2013/2014 is available here.
Details of the modules available within the business major may be obtained from www.ucd.ie/students/course_search.htm Students attending the Quinn School of Business typically take four Business modules per semester and a required module in Irish History and Culture. This module is entitled From Colony to Republic: the making of Modern Ireland (SBUS30010). The module is taught under the same structure as the business modules. Field trips to places of historical interest are an integral component of this module. The majority of modules in the Quinn School of Business are delivered through two hour classes; some also have additional tutorial hours which will be timetabled centrally.
Formal examinations are set at the end of each semester in December and May. Study Abroad students are expected to undertake examinations in accordance with University regulations. Increasingly, project and class-based work forms a substantial component of the assessment process.
At the end of the semester, the UCD Quinn School of Business sends an official transcript to the home institution. The home institution decides on credits to be awarded for modules completed at UCD. We will be pleased to provide full information on our modules to enable institutions to make decisions regarding the transfer of credits.
