This diploma programme is available only to students in Non-EU Universities with whom UCC has a bilateral agreement under Statute 263 of the National University of Ireland. Having studied for at least two full academic years at such a Non-EU University, students will study for one year at University College Cork, taking the programme to a value of 60 credits as outlined below.

The programme comprises 60 credits.

To be considered for the award of Diploma in Arts and Social Sciences a student must have satisfactorily attended and passed undergraduate modules to the value of 60 credits from a list of modules approved for Non-EU students by the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences and a Non-EU University with whom UCC has a bilateral agreement under Statute 263 of the National University of Ireland, and subject to timetabling and other constraints. LL4001 Contemporary Translation Theory and Practice (5 credits) has also been designed specifically for students of this programme and maybe be selected as part of the 60 credits. Where a module has prerequisites (as specified in the module description), a student must satisfy this prerequisite by demonstrating, to the satisfaction of the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences, that a similar module has been passed in the student’s Non-EU University.
