General Orientation Meetings - January 2019

Orientation for students arriving in January 2019 will be on Thursday 17th January 2019. You'll find your timetable on the Timetable page in early December. We recommend that you arrive in Dublin on Tuesday 15th January at the latest as there will also be important meetings to sign you up for your classes that week. These sessions contain important information about module enrolment, College supports and services and living in Dublin.

Module enrolment

Module enrolment is what we call the process you follow to sign up to your classes. As well as checking the Timetable page for your orientation timetable, make sure to check the Module Enrolment page to find out more about how to do it, and to check for details of School and Departmental enrolment meetings.
