Structured Electives

What is a Structured Elective?

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 Elective modules and not as Core or Option modules. Not all modules are offered in a given year.

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