A module is another term for a subject, which is taken as part of your degree programme at DCU. Each year you will take a total of 60 credits worth of modules for undergraduate degree programmes.  Upon registration, you will be given a list of the modules you are expected to complete in the given year. ‘Core Modules’ are modules that are compulsory in your programme and ‘optional modules’ are modules which you can choose from. If you have a choice of modules, you will be asked to choose these at registration. Changes to optional modules can be made during the change of module periods, for Semester One in September 2022 and for Semester Two in January 2023. These dates are outlined on the Academic Calendar available here. Please consult your Portal page to ensure that you have correctly registered for modules. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the details on their portal pages are correct.
