Modules for Credit


All Structured PhD students must take a minimum of 15 credits and a maximum of 30 credits of coursework and training over the course of the PhD, of which a minimum of 5 credits must consist of courses taken at UCC.  

In order to submit their thesis, a student who is registered on the Structured PhD must have completed the minimum level of non-thesis elements (i.e., 15 credits).

Students registered in particular Departments/Schools, or thematic structured PhD programmes, will follow the corresponding requirements regarding coursework and thesis preparation as outlined in the University Calendar.
