Open Learning

UCD Open Learning is an innovative and unique approach to part-time study at UCD.
You can choose from a wide range of undergraduate modules for either audit or credit. There are no entry requirements to the programme - you just need to find a module ot modules that interest you and simply book!

Each module is worth 5 ECTS and students can opt to take any combination of credit modules towards an award, either a Certificate in Open Learning (30 credits) or a Diploma in Open Learning (60 credits).


If you take a module for audit, you can fully participate in the modules without taking any assessment.


If you take the credit option, you are committing to participate in the module and take all the assessments.
