I am studying abroad this year, do I need to register and choose modules?

 

YES, you must register as a student at the beginning of the academic year and select modules where relevant e.g. BA students can select their 2 modules e.g. History and Spanish.

I am a REPEAT student, what additional information do I need?

  • If you fail modules in Summer or Autumn, you are automatically progressed to the next academic year - 20/21 and will receive registration correspondence via email ( Leagan Gaeilge). 
  • If you are incomplete for an academic year prior to 2019/2020 and wish to return to complete your studies, please contact the relevant College  and discuss your options with them.
  • EXEMPTIONS / PREVIOUSLY PASSED MODULES: It is your responsibility to ensure that all details of registered modules and exemptions listed on your registration statement are correct.   Please note that you cannot resit any modules previously sat and passed.  It is your responsibility to ensure that all details or registered modules and exemptions are correct.
    PLEASE NOTE...In some instances, some of the modules that you sat and passed may not automatically carry over to your repeat record as exempt - this is due to the fact that they are not available in your repeat year.  In this case, we will manually add the value of theses credits in the form of EX005, EX010 etc - please ensure that you only register for the balance of passed modules required.   
    Eg.  - Required Credits  for the Year -  60ects
              - Previously Passed - 30ects
              - Carried as exempt - 20ects
             - thus appear to be deficient/short in 10 passed credits as not available / didnt carry over
              -Reghelp will add the balance of 10 ects as EX010
              -you only need to regsiter for 30 ects
    DO NOT register for extra credits as these will be removed from your record.
