Selection of modules
DIT Programme Structure
DIT degrees are based on 3 or 4 year programmes of study. Students take a planned set of core and optional modules on a year by year basis. Unlike other countries, an Irish student has a defined path of study set out from the start. Each programme is managed as a coherent offering by a School/Department within the Faculty. Full-time students are required to study 60 European credits (ECTS) per year (30 per semester).
As an Exchange (NON EU) / Erasmus (EU) Student you can choose from across programmes and levels of study to achieve your study plan. As programmes are managed separately you will need to contact different schools and departments to finalise your programme of study. Modules are usually 5 or 10 ECTS credits and are delivered over a single semester or over two semesters. If a module is over one semester, this module is not repeated in the same academic year.
There are 341 modules on offer to you as an exchange student. Detailed information on the modules available is found on the section below.Please note that the only modules available are the ones listed in the Module Catalogue (the Excel file) and that we only offer modules at a Undergraduate level, from 1st to 4th year.
Before coming to DIT
You should develop a temporary selection of modules based on the areas you wish to study and the level appropriate to you.
- Here you can find our
- Here you can find the Module Description: just go on the Search Tab and fill in the details of the module you are looking for
VERY IMPORTANT: Please note that this is the Database for the whole Institute but the modules we can offer are ONLY the ones listed in the Module Catalogue (the Excel File) - you must use it only for finding the Module Description and Content
- When you fill in the Temporary Selection of Modules or the DIT Learning Contract/Programme of Study (see below for further details), you need to indicate also the code of the module. The table of subjects in this section indicates the ECTS (European credits) for each module and the semester(s) in which the module is delivered.
- LEGEND: 1= Semester 1 - 2= Semester 2 - AY= Full Year
- VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Students who will be studying in DIT in Semester 2 only, can't take any module of DT365, year 3 - DT555, year 2 - DT555, year 4
- Please note that if you choose a FULL YEAR module and you are only staying for 1 semester, you will get the half of the credits of the relevant module
Try to choose only modules which last one semester
If this is not possible, then you should talk with the relevant Lecturer when you are here in DIT to see whether it is possible for you to take the Full Year module but just for one semester
NON EU - EXCHANGE STUDENTS should contact the International Project Manager , Sara Galletti
EU - ERASMUS STUDENTS have to fill in also a Learning Agreement (the form given by your Home Institution) and send it by post or e-mail to the European Student Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
*** Please note that, since at the moment , the International Office is in the process of appointing a new European Student Office, there might be delays in the approval of your LA - so please send it to Sara Galletti at email@example.com ***
The deadline for the Submission of the Provisional Learning Contract 2013/2014/Pre-Learning Agreement is:
SEMESTER 1: 31.07.2010
SEMESTER 2: 04.12.2010
After your arrival at DIT
You will make your definite choice of modules only when you are arrived here in Dublin.
All the information will be given during the Induction week which is mandatory to attend - during this wek you will be given many of other useful information on Campus and City Life, Health and Safety, Societies, etc. but also on important Academic Issues:
SEMESTER 1: 13 - 17.09.2010
SEMESTER 2: 25 - 29.01.2011
They will be published at the end of the Induction week.
Then contact the school concerned to find the details of the modules (Lecturer, days, times, rooms)
Each year of a programme has a carefully structured timetable of lectures and tutorials.
When you choose from different programmes you will need to look carefully at each timetable. Often the modules are delivered more than once to different class groups which gives you a number of options.
You may attend lectures in the first week to check with the Lecturer delivering the module to ensure that it is suitable for you.
Please note that while DIT will endeavour to facilitate students' module choices, students must be aware of potential difficulties with timetabling, pre-requisites and year-long modules.
All the details on how to find timetables will be given to you during the Induction Meetings
