Structured Electives

A new system of structured electives has been introduced in the UCD School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics. Your credit statement indicates that this maybe of relevance to you.


Basic Model

1. Students who have completed at least 15 credits from the set of specified electives will have an Elective Specialisation in the Subject Area noted on their official transcript. Please see below the requirements for each Subject area. Students will NOT register for this elective specialisation in advance. It will be awarded post hoc based on the electives they have chosen during their undergraduate

2. No guarantee will be given to students that it will be possible to take 15 credits from the set. This will depend on module places being available and on the exigencies of the timetable.

3. Pre-requisites apply to some modules.
