Graduate Taught Students: Information for Incoming Students

Note: This page will be updated with new dates closer to your registration date.

Completing Module Registration

When attempting to complete their online registration, some incoming Graduate Taught students may experience difficulties in completing their module selection online.

A common issue is eligibility to take modules because the UCD online registration system is looking for proof that certain pre-requisite modules have been completed.

Please note that if students experience any issue with their Module Selection in terms of eligibility to take any of the modules offered by their programme, or any other issue relating to their registration they should contact  the UCD Engineering and Architecture College using this Student Connector Form 

Depending on your masters programme registration will take place on or after either Tuesday August 24th or Wednesday September 1st. A specific date and time will be sent to you through your UCD connect email account. Please note that your UCD connect account will be activated 48 hours prior to registration. To access your UCD Connect email, you will need to log into UCD Connect at www.ucd.ie/connect  Your username is your UCD student number, and your password is your date of birth (in ddmmyy format).

Students should also discuss their module selections with their Programme Director/ Coordinator at their scheduled Advisory session to ensure that they are in compliance with the programme structure.

Orientation Information

The College’s welcome Event for all our incoming graduate taught students will take place on: Tuesday 7th September 11.30am – 1pm (Zoom webinar), please register here. 

It is extremely important you attend this event as it will provide you with very useful information before you commence your studies with us.
Please save this time and date in your calendar and ensure you have register to attend.

A programme specific advisory session will take place on the week before term. Information relating to your session will be updated below so when that is available take note and save the details into your calendar so you do not miss it.
