All students who choose to visit DCU for a Semester or Year Long Study Abroad Programme of Study will be registered to one of  six programme codes or study streams;

  • HMSAO (Humanities)

  • IESAO (Education Stream) 
  • ECSAO (Engineering and Computing)
  • SHSAO (Science and Health Stream)
  • BSSAO (Business)

Students select the stream as part of the application process in accordance with their major.  So if a student is majoring in Communications, they will select or will be registered for the HMSAO stream and can only select courses / modules under this programme name.  Modules or courses from other faculties are availabe to this stream however more selection in the area you are majoring in will be available by choosing the stream nearest to your major.  If a student did not select a stream, our team will register the student  for the stream that fits closely to the pre-selected module choices on application.  The offer letter will confirm the stream and students are pre-registered agains the selection on application.  More than likely, students  will have chosen modules from last years list however new lists have been created for 2018/19 which may differ.
