Structured Electives

A Structured Elective means taking your elective credits in a structured manner over the course of your programme to form a small but coherent block amounting to a minimum of 15 credits. Note: In order to receive a Structured Elective in a given area you must take the required modules as General or In-Programme Elective modules and not as Core or Option modules.

Remember, If you take a Structured Elective it will appear on your official UCD Transcript, and means future employers will see that you have a block of credits in a specific area.

This list details the Structured Electives that are currently available in UCD.
