Information on Module Enrolment

  • Modules are enrolled subject to timetabling constraints. Students are not permitted to take clashing modules i.e. where there is a timetable clash with another module. Neither module/tutorial will be registered on your record until the clashing is resolved with the relevant academic department(s)/school.
  • A full academic year is equivalent to 60 ECTS. Full year students are expected to take a minimum of 45 ECTS and single term students a minimum of 20-30 ECTS.
  • The Academic Registry is responsible for the administrative process of module registration only. Any queries in relation to course content, course requirement or clashes should be directed to the relevant academic school.
  • Students must obtain the signed approval of the relevant coordinator in each academic area in respect of each module.
  • If you register for a module and do not withdraw officially by the submission deadline you will receive a mark of ABSENT on your Trinity transcript.
  • There will be a module enrolment fair with representatives from schools and the Academic Registry on hand to enrol students in their classes in Goldsmith Hall on Friday 17th January. Students can also enrol at the Academic Registry service desk from January 20th-30th, between 09:00 - 14:00.
