Two-subject Moderatorship (TSM)
The two-subject moderatorship is a joint honor programme. Students select two subjects from the list below (for permitted combinations and CAO course codes see below) and pursue both to degree level. Usually both subjects are studied for three years and one subject only is studied in the fourth and final year. An honors degree is awarded in both subjects. The minimum entry points for each TSM combination are available at: www.tcd.ie/Admissions/undergraduate/requirements/entrypoints
Students are not permitted to commence two new languages. Students wishing to combine two languages within TSM are required to present at least one of the chosen languages at grade C3 or better on a higher level Leaving Certificate paper or equivalent.

TR001 must NOT be entered on the CAO Application Form.
Each possible combination of two subjects has a unique three-digit code. TR followed by the three-digit code of your chosen TSM combination should be entered on the CAO application form e.g. French and German TR289.
The absence of a code in a grid position indicates that the corresponding combination of subjects is not permitted.
