Modules

UCC provides a large range of modules for research students. Check your course outline for compulsory modules required on your course.

PhD students are required to take a minimum level of 15 credits of coursework and training. For a 3 year PhD, the maximum number of module credits that can be undertaken is 30 credits. For a 4 year PhD, the maximum number of credits that can be undertaken is 90 credits.

There are four types of modules you can take as a research student at UCC. Modules are not guaranteed to run every year, therefore advance planning is recommended.

  • Generic & Transferable Skills Training Modules (available in Book of Modules)
  • Disciplinary Training Modules (available in Book of Modules)
  • Other modules of interest offered by UCC (available in Book of Modules)
  • External Modules
