Discipline Specific

All incoming UCD PhD students must take 30 credits of taught modules over the course of their programme. The aim of these taught modules are to facilitate research as well as to provide you with important transferable skills enhancing your career development.

Your School or Programme may recommend or require certain modules. Please check with your Supervisor. Unless your School or Programme stipulates specific modules, you may choose from the full range of modules available throughout the University in consultation and agreement with your Principal Supervisor and your Doctoral Studies Panel (DSP).

To register for modules, you must complete a module registration form which is available from your School after agreement with the module co-ordinator and your supervisor. This form should be returned to your School Office who will register you to your chosen modules.
