UCD Subject Register

The UCD Subject Register is published in the UCD Document Library. The Register lists all approved subjects and approved Heads of Subject within the University. The emergence of a new subject, the review of an existing subject, and the appointment of a new Head of Subject constitute an amendment to the UCD Subject Register.   Forms and Procedures relating to these processes are linked below.

The UCD Subject Register is noted at the first meeting of the Academic Council each year.
