Programme Office information on degree compliance:

http://www.ucd.ie/acshs/bafull-time/currentstudents/bastage2/modulelevels/

BA Full-Time students - MODULE LEVELS REQUIRED FOR DEGREE COMPLIANCE

  • You must get 180 credits to graduate (240 credits if you are taking an international degree or BA Computer Science). However, it is not just any combination of 180 credits that will do. There are limits and requirements on the number of credits that you can use from modules at different levels:

  • No more than 80 credits can be taken from Level 1, or below, modules (e.g. ENG 10050, ECON10010), which no more than 10 credits can be taken from Level 0 (e.g. IR00010). 

  • At least 100 credits must be taken from modules at Level 2 (e.g. ENG20040) and higher.

  • Within the 100 credits required at Level 2 and higher, at least 40 credits must be at Level 3 (ENG30070) or above (IS40310)These totals must be achieved across the entire degree.
