In viewing the information, please note that the first two letters of the module code indicate the subject area to which the module belongs. The FINAL numerical digit of the code corresponds to the semester of study in which the module is normally taken by Irish students i.e. year one modules end in 1 (Fall semester) and 2 (Spring semester) - year two modules end in 3 (Fall semester) and 4 (Spring semester) and so on until year four. These codes should be used as a guide to the level of each course. (There are some exceptions to this rule).

There is no guarantee that the same courses will be offered in the future, or that they will be offered during the term in which you are abroad.
