UCD Student Support
UCD has a large number of staff whose specifc job it is to
support students and look out for their welfare.
Attending university can be a very diffcult and stressful
time for many students; fnancial and other worries can
result in students feeling unable to cope.
If you encounter any of these issues, and would like to discuss them with someone,
dont hesitate to schedule a chat with your Student Adviser, your Students Union
Welfare Offcer or anyone else listed in this section and let them know whats on
your mind.
Dont think twice about seeking help.
Theres no harm in asking.
There is no issue too big or too small.
Worrying about it may impact on your
studies.
Support staff will do what they can to help
put your mind at ease.
Theres no shame in seeking help; these
individuals are professionals and
wont judge you.

Please Talk.ie
Please Talk began in January 2007 in UCD as a
response to the deaths of several students in
the college by suicide. UCD staff and students
felt something had to be done. Please Talk
urges students to understand that talking is a
sign of strength, not of weakness, and if youre
experiencing problems while at college, there
are people there to talk to. It promotes this
message through a joint effort between various
support services in the college and UCD Students
Union. These support services include: chaplains,
counsellors, student advisers, the welfare offcer,
disability support services and many more.
The Please Talk Committee is made up of staff and
students and was established in 2009 to promote
the campaign and organise new ways to get the
message across and support students. Since then,
Please Talk has ran a number of events all over
the UCD campus including breakfast mornings in
different faculties, mental health talks, a candle-
lit vigil on November 2nd, a t-shirt competition,
and many others. These events aim to increase the
awareness of Please Talk but also to promote the
message that talking is a sign of strength.
Please Talk is growing. This year we hope to add
to the annual events with treasure hunts, support
groups, barbeques, and much more. You too can
get involved in the campaign by dropping down to
Rachel, the Welfare Offcer, or emailing welfare@
ucdsu.ie. Please Talk needs you so it can continue
helping your fellow students and saving lives.
Please Talk urges students to
understand that talking is a sign of
strength, not of weakness, and if youre
experiencing problems while at college,
there are people there to talk to.

UCD offers frst year undergraduate students an opportunity to be part of a peer
mentoring programme. This programme aims to provide frst years with on-going
peer support during their frst year at UCD. Mentors are students themselves, and
meet with frst years a number of times during the year to discuss any problems or
challenges that arise while settling into UCD.
Linking in and staying connected with your Peer Mentor is a great way to ensure
you get involved and stay in the picture.
The Peer Mentoring programme is co-ordinated by the Student Advisers, with
a dedicated Student Development Offcer coordinating the Arts Peer Mentor
Programme.

I could not have been happier
with the help I got in the MSC, it
really helped me understand maths
when I thought Id never understand
it!! One to one is so much easier to
understand and ask questions than in
the lectures!
...just one of many positive comments
from a student last year.

Mumps Information
There have been signifcant outbreaks of mumps in Third Level Colleges
throughout Ireland.
Mumps is an acute viral illness that causes fever, headache and painful swollen
glands as well as serious complications. It is spread from person to person
by coughs and sneezes. It can also be transmitted by direct contact through
saliva.
Your risk of contracting mumps is signifcantly reduced by vaccination. You
need two doses of the MMR vaccine to maximize your protection. If you have
not received the vaccine or both doses, or are unsure, please have the MMR
vaccine from your GP prior to coming to college. If you havent had your
vaccine before coming to university you can alternatively arrange to have the
vaccine at the Student Health Service.

The UCD Student Counselling Service is committed to supporting positive student
mental health and well-being. Its aim is to provide easily accessible support
for students when personal issues arise that affect their happiness, well-being,
capacity to cope, relationships or learning.
Just as in any group of people, students can encounter diffculties, particularly
in the transition from school to college or at pressure times during college
years. Diffculties can range from minor concerns and stresses to major life
crises. Although in many cases students may fnd ways to deal with these issues
themselves or with the support of friends and family, there are times when it is
benefcial to seek professional help. Counselling offers students the opportunity to
get this professional help, to think about new ways of addressing diffculties and to
be supported while doing so.
The Service
The Student Counselling Service is a confdential, individual counselling service
to students of the university. The Service is located upstairs in the Student
Centre. At the frst meeting between a student and a counsellor, the counsellor
will explain how the service works and answer any questions that a student may
have. Consultations typically last up to 50 minutes and students attend weekly,
fortnightly or at less frequent intervals depending on the students needs. Students
usually attend for between 1-6 appointments.
Staff
The service is resourced by clinical psychologists, counselling psychologists and
counsellors.
Times of Service
Consultations are by appointment. The Service is available Monday to Friday, 9.30
- 17.00.

The Student Complaints Offce is governed by the Student Complaints Policy and
Procedures document which was approved by Academic Council in December
2006. The policy was established to provide clear guidelines for students to tackle
problems that they may encounter whilst attending the University.
As students you have the right to lodge a complaint against a School, Service or
individual in the University if you feel that your legitimate expectations are not
being met. Your grounds for complaint might relate to areas including:
Teaching and academic facilities
Academic services
On-campus accommodation
Student support services
Administrative services
Alleged actions or inaction by the University or a member of its staff
There are two stages to the Student Complaints Procedure: Informal and Formal.
There is also an appeals process.
Your complaint should initially be raised as near as possible to the point at which
the problem occurred - in the School or University Service - and should be pursued
informally in the frst instance. However, if your complaint cannot be resolved
informally at local level, the University has adopted a procedure which also allows
for complaints to be pursued, impartially and objectively, at a formal level.
The Student Complaints Offce manages the formal procedure to be followed if
and when the complaint has not been resolved informally.
Information about the student complaints procedure is available at
www.ucd.ie/complaints
If you have any questions regarding the procedure or if you would like advice or
assistance, please contact the Universitys Student Complaints Offcer to arrange
an appointment.

Due for completion by the Spring 2012, the new Student Centre will revolutionise
student life in UCD. In a single step, UCD will jump to the top of the league of Irish
universities for on-campus, quality student facilities.
At the centre of the new building will be an Olympic standard, 50 metre swimming
pool with movable foors to allow experienced and learner swimmers the chance
to use the facility. The student centre will also feature a brand new gymnasium,
dance studio and spinning classroom, all of which will be available to students.
After your workout you can wind down in the sauna or the jacuzzi.
If you just want to relax without the workout, there will be a state of the art
3D cinema, screening the latest blockbusters as well as flm classics and movie
marathons. In addition to the cinema, there will be a brand new drama theatre
and debating chamber as well as new facilities for the over 100 clubs and societies.
UCDs large student media, which includes newspapers as well as a television and
radio station, will also be housed within the building.
Once built, the new Student Centre will represent a massive expansion in the
range of medical facilities available to UCDs student population. The new medical
centre will be located on the second foor, away from the main part of the building,
to ensure the privacy of patients. A pharmacy will also be housed within the
building ensuring that all the medical needs of UCD students are met.
In short, the new Student Centre will become the heart of Irelands largest
university and provide for the needs of its student population. To keep up to date
with the latest developments check us out on Facebook or visit our website

The University provides its students with non-transferable personalised student
cards. The card allows for the identifcation of students while on University
property. It provides access to a range of University facilities such as the UCD
Library, facilitates the borrowing of library books, and allows for admission to
UCD student-catering outlets.
The student card ensures that the facilities are appropriately accessed and
utilised and that the University community is protected from the actions of
persons not registered in the University. The student card remains the property
of UCD at all times.
Your UCD student card is your offcial identifcation
card for the duration of your programme in UCD.
If youre a returning UCD student, you will not
have to queue each year for a new card. The
student card you already have is designed to
last you for the duration of your programme
in UCD. Only new students or students
changing programme (e.g. going from a
Bachelor degree to a Masters) will be issued
with a student card this year.
For more information visit
www.ucd.ie/registry/adminservices/studentdesk/student_card.html
Photograph Guidelines
Students must ensure that the photograph
on their UCD student card meets the
following requirements:
The photograph should show a full
front view of the student as they would
normally appear.
The expression should be neutral with both
eyes open and mouth closed. There should be no
hair covering the eyes. Contrived expressions such as
raised eyebrows, squinting or frowning are not acceptable.

Present their UCD student card whenever
requested to do so by a member of UCD staff.

University during the course of an academic
year, on either a permanent or temporary basis,

Student Desk.
Be aware that if their UCD student card is
lost or stolen, they are obliged to inform the
University immediately, so that the appropriate
precautions can be taken to ensure that their
card is not used without their consent. Failure

UCD Student guide & Diary 2011/2012
UCD has a rich and varied student life offering a wealth of
experiences outside the classroom. The bringing together
of so many talented people offers fertile ground in which
artistic, cultural, social, sporting and group activity can
thrive.
UCDs student organisations are the vibrant backbone of the University. The
memories fostered in these groups can become the most valued of your student
years and the qualities that can be uncovered and nurtured through your
participation in these groups can add an edge to any CV when the time comes to
enter the working world.
UCD Campus plays host to over one hundred student societies. Coordinated
by the student members of each societys appointed committee, the energy of
UCDs social life comes from student innovation and participation in these wholly
student-run organisations. New societies are emerging in every feld and address a
wide range of interests. Indeed, should you wish to start a student society yourself,
youll be sure to fnd people with similar interests to do it with; such is the diversity
of life in UCD.
Alongside your leisure activities being catered for, your student rights and day-to-
day welfare are taken care of by The Students Union. Elected from among the
student body, The Students Union represents students opinions and addresses
the problems and concerns that students face both on an individual and a group
basis, from unplanned pregnancy to late grant distribution. Services offered by
the Union include the shops, bars and the pool hall known as The Trap. They also
organise regular live music performances in the Student Club along with various
other events during the year.
UCD Sport offers all UCD students the opportunity to use the sports facilities as
an individual or as part of a group. UCD students can join any of the sports clubs
ranging from Archery to GAA to Ultimate Frisbee. All sports clubs cater for all
levels and abilities. Alternatively, if you are interested in participating in ftness
classes or health and exercise programmes, UCD students can choose to pay-as-
you-go, join a course or register for one of the UCD Get in Gear programmes.

UCDs student media is of a very high quality. The radio station, Belfeld FM, is
ever growing and always looking for more contributors. The College Tribune and
The University Observer are UCDs award-winning student newspapers and are
well known as being the stepping stone to successful careers in media. UCD is
also home to the frst student-run television station based in Ireland, Campus
Television Network (CTN), which provides a forum for students to engage in all
aspects of the workings of a television channel.
Fundraising and volunteering opportunities are available in abundance on UCD
Campus. On Programme Days, students fundraise for their chosen charities and
take a well earned rest from lectures to work together in raising as much money
as possible through collections and other activities. Ask in your Programme
Offce about how to get involved. UCD Volunteers Overseas offers students the
opportunity to engage in voluntary work in the Third World during the summer as
well as working on projects in Dublin during the year.
The music scene of UCD is thriving with groups like the Choral Scholars, the
Philharmonic Orchestra and the Symphony Orchestra offering an outlet for the
musically talented who study at UCD.
In acknowledgement of the importance of involvement in activities additional
to your academic experience, UCD strives to recognise students for their
commitment to all aspects of UCD life. The Presidents Award for Excellence in
Student Activities is the badge of recognition for those who contribute to the life
of the university and make UCD a more interesting, exciting and humanitarian
place to live and work. The Newman Community Fund exists to assist students
who have an idea for a project they think will contribute towards community
life on campus. The possibilities are endless. Keep reading for more specifc
information on all of the above.
UCDs student organisations are the
vibrant backbone of the University

Societies are an exciting feature of life at UCD. There are more than 100 of them,
covering everything from debating and creative writing to juggling and dancing
-and even beyond! Dont miss out on the opportunity to get involved during
Freshers Week and join as many societies as you can for no more than 2 each for
membership. There is guaranteed to be something for everyone!
Freshers Week: 19th - 23rd September 2011
You get the time to join societies during Freshers Week, which takes place in
the second week of term from 19th - 23rd September. Each society will have a
stand in the Freshers Pavilion, which is located beside the Student Centre for
the week. Societies can also be joined after Freshers Week, with most taking
membership anytime during the year, or more specifcally during Refreshers
Day, which takes place at the start of Semester 2.
During Freshers Week, there will be a range of activities run by all the societies,
which are advertised on posters around campus. Many societies also offer
specifc events for Freshers and new members, to give you the opportunity to
meet up with other people who have newly joined. You should try to join the
society that represents your school or course, as well as other societies that
offer events and activities that you fnd interesting. Its important to move
outside your comfort zone a little bit to enjoy new opportunities. Societies are
an ideal way to meet new friends and get involved in student life.

UCD sports clubs are at the nucleus of student sport in the
University with over 8,500 members each year.
The Athletic Union Council (AUC) is the governing body for UCD sports clubs
and all UCD sports clubs are affliated with the AUC. Clubs provide a range of
opportunities to train, play and compete in sport, no matter what your passion,
ability or level. Although competition is a feature of many sports at UCD, clubs
also cater for students who may not wish to compete but want to train in a
particular sport for health and ftness benefts. Whether you want to try out a
new sport or continue training in a sport you are already familiar with, UCD sports
clubs invite you to get involved.
Some of the sports clubs available include:

UCD get In gear Programmes
If your preference is to improve general health and ftness
without committing to a sports club, why not register for a
UCD Get in Gear programme.
The UCD Get in Gear Programmes offer dynamic and exciting activities over a
seven-week period and they are rolled out twice in the academic year (October
and January). The programmes aim to promote the benefts of exercise and
a healthy lifestyle to all UCD students. UCD Get in Gear Programmes are
coordinated by UCD Sport in partnership with UCD School of Public Health,
Physiotherapy & Population Science and the UCD Institute of Food and Health.
UCD Get in Gear Get Active Programme
This programme consists of a health evaluation, carried out prior to participation;
this session is followed by a structured programme of moderate exercise activities.
There are a wide variety of indoor and outdoor exercise classes, all led by ftness
professionals. Following completion of the programme, health evaluations are
again carried out to determine progress.
UCD Get in Gear Boot Camp Programme
Regardless of age or ftness level, this programme will target students who
want an opportunity to break up the boredom of your regular exercise routine
while challenging you in unique ways to keep you motivated and eager to get
out and get ft. The instructors will inspire and encourage you through a seven-
week ftness programme with a range of exciting exercise workouts. UCD Get in
Gear Boot Camp Programme is a step up from the UCD Get in Gear Get Active
Programme but it can also appeal to students who would like to maintain your
ftness levels for your own sport, or just improve your current ftness levels.
Students will have the opportunity to take part in a ftness test before the
programme commences and again after the fve weeks of activities to measure
improvements in ftness levels.

You advertise the programmes under the umbrella of
UCD Get in Gear - emphasising to the students Just
Cost is 40 (same for both programmes) so have this
information on it.
Now Im not sure do we say what is in each pro-
gramme separately on the ad - maybe ring me on this
- what do you think?
Maybe just advertise them as Exciting Health &
Exercise Programmes for All UCD Students
Put in the box which you used in the Club Hand-
book - with Registration dates and Programme begin
dates - but you had 1 date wrong in the Boot Camp
so change this - Registration is from 7 Sept - 4th Oct
(not 7 - 28 Sept)...only for Boot Camp - the Get Ac-
tive Dates are ok.
Also mention on the add Caters for all tness levels
and Open to UCD Students only

What exactly is the Students Union?
It is a Union run by UCD students, for UCD students. Its role is to ensure that
students interests are looked after in all issues relating to their education and
personal well-being in university and beyond.
The Students Union is central to university life in UCD. As well as representing
students, the SU provides many services on campus such as four shops,

entertainment events during the year featuring the best music and live acts
around. They are also responsible for running the two bars on campus
offcially the best pubs this side of Bavaria.
How is the Students Union run?
The Students Union is a democratic organisation. Each class elects a rep who
represents their class on the Students Union Council. Every year, campus-
wide elections are held for offcer positions at which you will have a vote.
UCD Students Union is affliated with a national students union, USI, which
represents students across Ireland.
Where will I fnd the Students Union?
Everywhere! But specifcally, the Students Union offces are in the Student
Centre. Be sure to drop into the Students Union Marquee beside the Gerard
Manley Hopkins Centre Orientation Week 2011.

The UCD Fashion Show has been a highlight
in the social calendar of Ireland for the past
decade and in previous years has been the
largest ever student fashion show in Europe.
The show has it all; glitz, glamour, amazing
professionalism. At the heart of it all is a desire
to raise funds for charity, such as the Make-A-
Wish Foundation for whom much needed funds
were raised last year.
The show has produced a wealth of talent, Miss
World, Rosanna Davison was discovered and
experienced her frst taste of the catwalk at the
show.

UCD Volunteering
Volunteering is the offering of your time, for free, to
work in an organisation concerned with addressing a
specifc cause, or to work with people on an individual
level.
Its benefts are widespread; from the community and the individuals in direct
receipt of the volunteering acts, to the volunteers themselves. It presents an
opportunity to learn new skills and develop your abilities through lending
a helping hand, and provides an enriching learning experience for all those
involved.
As a student, volunteering gives you the chance to gain some real-life
experience and at the same time provide much-needed help to your
community. Its a great way to get to know more people from different
backgrounds and experience something totally different and in doing so, you
might even learn something new about yourself! There are lots of different
ways to get involved both on and off campus.
Presidents Awards for
Excellence in Student
Activities
This award scheme aims to give recognition
to those students who excel in the
extra-curricular activities which make
UCD a more exciting, interesting and
humane place to live and work. Typically
these students are actively engaged and
committed to a programme or university-
wide society or sporting activity, have
contributed to support services for fellow
students or have excelled in competitive
activity in the University or Intervarsity
events.

UCD has several performing groups that students can join: the UCD Choral
Scholars, the UCD Philharmonic Choir and the UCD Symphony Orchestra.
Making music together is a great way to meet people and it is also part of the
educational concept behind UCD Horizons. Students can participate in these
ensembles for course credit if they wish.
Choral Scholars/ Choral Scholarships
UCD offers 16-18 scholarships (worth 1,000 on average) to singers each year,
awarded on the performance of candidates at an audition held in the second
week of term (September 19th 2011). Successful candidates sing as part of UCD
Choral Scholars, the Universitys premier ensemble, who have toured abroad,
recorded two award-winning discs, won national competitions and performed
major concerts in Dublin and beyond.
The UCD Choral Scholars have recently partnered with the European Union
Chamber Orchestra to present several joint performances between 2009 and
2011 in Ireland and the UK, and are planning a performance in Italy in December

UCD Horizons
UCD Horizons is the name given to the
structure of undergraduate degrees at
UCD. UCD Horizons has three main
features: it is modularised, semesterised
and credit-based. With Horizons, you have
an input into the design of your degree.
Modules
Your programme will be made up of a set of modules. There are three types of
modules:
Core modules: which are mandatory for your programme
Option modules: which you can pick from a list of possibilities within
your programme area
Elective modules: which you can pick from anywhere across the UCD
curriculum
With UCD Horizons, you will usually register for 12 modules per year (each
module is normally 5 credits, amounting to a normal workload of 60 credits in
total per year). Generally, the majority of your study will be in your programme
area(s); some modules may be compulsory (core modules), others will be
options, where you choose modules that interest you from a set of modules in
that subject. You will then be able to choose additional elective modules these
may be chosen from your programme area(s) or from anywhere else within the
entire curriculum (e.g. Music, Biology, French, Maths and there are many more to
choose from).
It is up to you to decide whether you wish to broaden your
knowledge by taking elective modules from outside your
programme, or deepen your knowledge by focusing on modules
within your programme degree area.

For example, Sociology students may be able to take modules in Law, Medical
students may be able to take a Philosophy module, or Science students may be
able to take a Business module. It is important to remember that your choice of
elective modules may be constrained by:
The modules pre-requisites
(i.e. knowledge/study required prior to taking a module)
Timetable clashes
Availability of places on the module

Semesters
Your academic year has two distinct parts called
semesters. The semesters generally run from
September to December and from January to
June with a mid-semester break. Normally,
a semester will comprise 15 weeks: 12 weeks
teaching and learning, one week revision and
two weeks of exam assessment. Six modules
(usually equivalent to 30 credits) will generally
be taken per semester; however, you may
decide to take fewer or a greater number of
modules in a given semester depending on
your own circumstances (subject to student
workload norms as set down in General
Regulation 2.3).
Credit
All modules have a credit value, and for each
module you pass you will gain credit towards
your fnal degree. The credit-value of a module
corresponds to the total amount of student
effort (in hours) required to successfully
complete the module. As most modules are
5 credits, this would require 100-125 hours of
total student effort for each module. Modules
at a value of 10 credits require 200-250 hours
of total student effort. Credits are like an
internationally recognised currency which
represents teaching and learning activity.
As UCD participates in the European Credit
Transfer System (ECTS), it is also easier for you
to study abroad for a period of time if you wish
to earn credit towards your degree in UCD. You
will obtain your degree when you have earned
the correct number of creditsusually between
180 and 240 credits, normally spread across 3-4
years.

Understanding UCD Horizons: Jargon Buster
Subject Credit Block:
A block of modules taken in a subject area or feld of study. For example, Stage
1 Arts students may take subject blocks across the Arts and Human Sciences
spectrum.
Degree Programme
This is the course you will study such as a Bachelor of Agricultural Science
(BAgrSc) or Bachelor of Engineering (BE).
Module
A self-contained unit of teaching and learning, which is studied over a semester.
Each module has a credit value. A 5 credit module will require 100 to 125 hours
of work. This includes lectures/seminars, self directed study and assessment.
Stage
Modular programmes work on the principle of credit accumulation and you will
progress through your programme in stages as you accumulate credit. A degree
programme will normally be between 2-4 stages.
Majors and Minors
These terms refer to the proportion of credit allocated to each subject
you study as part of your degree. Degrees can be confgured into different
combinations. For example, in some programmes (e.g. BA) you may choose
to confgure your degree as a joint major where you study two subjects of
equal credit value. Alternatively, you may choose a major/ minor combination,
where the major element attracts more credits than the minor. The relevant
Programme Offce can provide you with information about the different
combinations available within specifc degree programmes.

Whats different about learning at university?
Being accepted to university is a wonderful achievement. You are about to
begin a very exciting time in your life, where youll make strong friendships,
and develop new ways of learning that are relevant to the global and rapidly
changing world around you. A university education is a chance to learn about a
subject in detail, as much as acquiring the skills to learn which you will continue
to use long after you have graduated from UCD. While you are learning at
university you will be expected to:
Become an independent thinker.
Challenge some of the knowledge you have taken for granted.
Form critical judgements about issues in your subject.
Learn with and from other students.
Take responsibility for your own learning.
Managing yourself
The academic year is divided into two 12-week semesters things move
quickly- so it is important to stay on top of your assignments and study. While
you will have scheduled time in a classroom, you will also have a lot of free time
over the course of the day. Therefore the expectation is that you will:
Attend class (lectures, tutorials, seminars, laboratories etc).
Study and undertake additional reading.
Prepare for class and undertake independent learning tasks.
Complete an academic workload of approximately 40 hours per week.
Making a Success of
University Learning
A university education is a chance to learn about a subject in
detail, as much as acquiring the skills to learn which you will
continue to use long after you have graduated from UCD.

Effective learning habits
Lectures are an important learning resource, because they will provide you with
guidance to the key issues you need to learn about and understand further in your
subject. Smaller group learning activities, for example tutorials/ laboratories,
provide invaluable opportunities to discuss complex issues and are often focused
on preparing you for assessment tasks. In order to be an effective learner, you will
need to:
Know whats expected of you by reading the learning outcomes and
assessment criteria for your modules. Blackboard is a good place to start.
Be honest with yourself about what you understand and what you havent
yet fully grasped.
Ask questions of your lecturers, tutors and indeed classmates about things
that you dont yet understand.
Be patient effective reading, writing and note-taking skills take time to
develop.
Understand what your learning style is, and work in a way that maximises
this

Be honest with yourself about
what you understand and what

The Academic Regulations are a set of high level, overarching rules governing
the Universitys educational offerings comprising: General Regulations,
Regulations for Research Masters Degrees, Regulations for the Degree of Doctor
of Philosophy, Regulations for the Degree of Doctor of Medicine and Regulations
for the Degrees of Doctor of Nursing and Doctor of Midwifery.
All students, including students returning to their programme following a leave
of absence or withdrawal, are governed by the Academic Regulations in place
in the academic session they (re-)register. The status of PhD students returning
from a leave of absence whose frst registration was prior to 2006 may be
determined by the relevant Graduate School Board.
The following short list of basic principles extrapolated from General
Regulations may be of particular interest to students. It must be remembered
however, that the full set of regulations for your programme apply to your
study at UCD.
For the full set of Academic Regulations, including access to the Online Users
Guide to the General Regulations and the Student Code go to

Academic Regulations Quick guide
Most modules will count for 5 credits, but some may count for more credits
if they merit it;
Student performance in a module will be graded, using letter grades ranging
from A+ (at the top of the scale) to NG (at the bottom of the scale) with a
corresponding grade-point from 4.2 to 0;
Performance across the range of modules that a student undertakes will be
calculated using a Grade-Point Average (GPA) system, which is an average
of grade-points awarded for each module, weighted according to the credit
value of the modules for which the grades were awarded;
You will receive a GPA at the end of every semester (semester GPA) and at
the end of every stage (stage GPA). You will also receive a degree GPA when
you have completed your programme, which will be used to determine your
degree award classifcation (e.g. 1st class Honours, 2nd class Honours, etc.);
If you fail a module you may either re-sit the assessment, repeat the
module when it is next offered or substitute the module with another
compatible module. Each of these options has a different impact on the
grade(s) available to a student who is remediating a failure. For example,
a re-sit only carries a pass/fail grade. For a repeat, the grade-point is
capped at 2.0 (equivalent to a grade of D-), irrespective of the actual grade
awarded. For a substitution, the full range of grades is available for option
and elective modules only.
For detailed information about your programme, undergraduate students
should consult their Programme Offce.
Graduate students should contact their School Offce/Graduate School Offce.

Academic Policies
The implementation of modularisation has required
the development of academic policy to ensure that all
students are treated equally across the University and its
programmes. Students should make themselves aware
of policies which may affect them. A selected list of the
Universitys academic policies is included below and such
policies can be accessed at

Please see below information pertaining to grading in the modular system. A
Users guide to UCD Academic Regulations is also available at
www.ucd.ie/registry/academicsecretariat/pol.htm
You will notice that you have received fnal module grades which have been
formally approved by the University.
Aggregating Component Grades
Component grades as below are normally aggregated to arrive at a fnal module
grade for each module you are registered to. This may involve the aggregation of
the various component grades or marks.
grade Description
A+, A, A- Excellent
B+, B, B- Very Good
C+, C, C- Good
D+, D, D- Acceptable
E+, E, E-
F Fail
G+, G, G-
NG
The overall module grade you receive is the fnal approved result awarded to
you by the University. Normally this will have been aggregated from component
grades or marks as described below. However, in some circumstances and for
sound educational reasons, an examiner will calculate your overall module grade
using different criteria or a different mark-conversion scheme. If this is the case,
it will not be calculated as specifed below and you will be notifed of the criteria
used by your School or Module Co-ordinator.
Where a component is marked rather than graded then the overall component
mark is retained in calculating the fnal grade.
Where a component is graded rather than marked the calculation point (as shown
on the component grade scale below) is used in calculating the fnal grade.
Calculations of fnal module grades also take into account the weighting attached
to the various components making up the module.

The fnal module grade has been determined and approved by the University.
Each grade has a value attached to it for the purposes of calculating a Grade Point
Average (GPA).
UCD MODULE gRADE SCALE
Module grades gP Values Module grades gP Values
A+ 4.2 C- 2.6
A 4.0 D+ 2.4
A- 3.8 D 2.2
B+ 3.6 D- 2.0
B 3.4 E 1.6
B- 3.2 F 1.0
C+ 3.0 g 0.4
C 2.8 Ng 0.0
DISTINCTION/PASS/FAIL gRADE SCALE
Where module outcomes cannot be assessed to the level of module grades, the
results may be returned as pass/fail, or distinction/pass/fail.
grade When awarded? Credit grade Point
DS Passed with distinction Awarded Neutral
P (Px) Pass Awarded Neutral
F (Fx) Fail None 1.0
NG No grad None 0
PASSINg gRADES AS, BS, CS AND DS
As, Bs, Cs and Ds are passing grades that are awarded on satisfactory completion
of the module assessments. The credits available for the modules are converted to
credits earned.
Note: Passed modules cannot be repeated
E gRADE (gRADE POINT VALUE 1.6)
E grades are failing grades, which have a grade point value of 1.6. These E grades
may convert to E(C) grades (pass with compensation) in the circumstances
outlined in the section overleaf.

E(C) gRADE (PASS BY COMPENSATION)
E(C) grades (pass with compensation) are awarded where E grades have been
compensated. E grades are then converted to E(C) grades and carry the same
grade point value of 1.6.
For compensation, you must:
Have completed and obtained passing grades in modules accounting for 1.
75% or more of the total credit required to successfully complete the stage
(usually 45 credits or 9 modules).
Have a Compensation GPA for the attempt at the stage that is 2.00 or 2.
greater.
E gRADE (NOT PASSABLE BY COMPENSATION)
Some modules are designated as not passable by compensation, such as, for example,
foundation modules that are pre-requisites for further study in some languages. Where
this is the case, the E grades remain and still retain the value of 1.6.
F, g, Ng gRADES
F, G and NG are failing grades. If you fail a module you will be required to repeat,
resit or substitute the module in order to obtain the necessary credit for the
module. The circumstances under which you can remediate a failed module are
set out in the section on remediation on the online users guide to the Academic
regulations, that can be accessed at:
www.ucd.ie/registry/academicsecretariat/asug/remediationoffailedmodules
REPEAT GRADES
Where grades are followed by (R) this indicates that the module was assessed in
repeat mode. Where modules are repeated and passed, the grade point is capped
at 2.0, irrespective of the actual grade awarded, i.e. a B+ grade or a C grade can be
awarded for the repeat attempt, but the grade point value remains at 2.0.
RESIT gRADES
There are three module grades available for you if you have attempted a resit
assessment. These are as follows:
grade When Awarded? Credit grade Point
P Pass Student achieves a pass for the module Awarded 2.0
F Fail Student fails to achieve a pass for the module None 1.0
NG
No relevant
attempt
Student shows no relevant attempt at the
module
None 0

Assignments, class tests, essays, exams,
presentations, projects, reports
Unlike your experience at school, universities use a wide range of assessment
types, and some will be new to you. All assessments are important in developing
your learning, for example assessments in the early weeks are designed to give you
an early indication of your own progress. You will have at least two assessments
per module, and there are 6 modules in each semester. In order to do well in a
module, you will need to:
Undertake and submit all of your assignments/assessments, particularly
those required early in the module.
Ask for assistance from your lecturers/tutors if you have diffculty
understanding what youre expected to do.
Use the indicated readings and other learning resources to prepare for your
assessments.
Ensure that the assessment is your own work, and that you correctly
acknowledge the work/ideas of other people
(see: http://library.acadiau.ca/tutorials/plagiarism/).
Understand the assessment criteria and check your own work to see how
well it meets these before you hand it in.
Ask your lecturer for feedback on assessed work and guidance on how to
improve your next piece of work.
Finally, there are a number of books which provide advice on how to be successful
at university; here are two Irish books which you may fnd useful:
How to be a Student: 100 great ideas and practical
habits for students everywhere
Moore, S. & Murphy. (2005)
Berkshire: Open University Press.
Managing your Own Learning at
University: A Practical Guide

The Students Union has a full time offcer
solely responsible for your academic
affairs. This year your Education Offcer
is Sam Geoghegan. Sam has been elected
from the student body and therefore
understands exactly how it feels to be a
student. He will deal with any issues you
may have, in a friendly and confdential
manner. If you feel you have been treated
unfairly you can speak to Sam and he can
represent you and your interests at many
University meetings and committees.
Sam runs the Grindsfle in UCD. This is
a list of people who are willing to give
grinds in various different subjects. The
fle will highlight the tutors level of
knowledge in the area and the cost! To
access the Grindsfle, simply visit www.
ucdsu.ie and look under Education!
The Education Offcer also is in charge
of the running of the Students Union
Bookstore. Secondhand books are sold
here at a greatly reduced price. For more
information you can drop down to the
Bookstore in the Student Centre or visit

Your results, both provisional and fnal, will be posted online through the Student
Information System (SIS) Web, which you can access through UCD Connect. For an
indication of when this will occur, please consult
www.ucd.ie/registry/assessment/info_stu.htm
Surviving Exams
DURINg THE ExAMINATION PERIOD
Check and re-check your examination schedule. It will be available online
at www.ucd.ie/registry/assessment/info_ stu.htm about two months in
advance of the exams. Make sure not to miss/forget about an exam.
Dont stay up all night before your exam. The precious little you do
manage to absorb will be neatly cancelled out by the diffculty youll have
concentrating.
The night before a morning exam, set several very loud alarms and hide
them in interesting and novel parts of your bedroom.
Make a deal with a friend to call each other before exams to make sure that
youre up and on your way.
You can help yourself by eating well and avoiding over-usage of stimulants
like sugar and caffeine. Some physical activity is a good way of working out
stress and counteracting the inactivity of sitting at a desk in the Library.
Stress management is important during the assessment period. Remind
yourself of the big picture, remember that there are second chances and
make some time for diversions. Set aside an hour or two regularly and do
something fun. Try to change the scenery, maybe mix with people who
arent at university and wont slip into chatting about study.
Assessment Tips
The night before a morning exam, set several very loud
alarms and hide them in interesting and novel parts of
your bedroom.

ON THE DAY OF THE ExAMINATION
To view a copy of the examination regulations go to
www.ucd.ie/registry/assessment/info_stu.htm
Bring your ID and anything else the regulations require.
Bring something to drink and at least one spare pen.
Bring a calculator (non-programmable), drawing tools or any other
special equipment if theyre allowed. Do not bring anything else into the
Examination Centre, as you may be accused of cheating.
No phones/programmable calculators.
Allow extra time for getting to the Examination Centre, check public
transport is running as usual, especially on Saturdays.
DURINg THE ExAMINATION
Read everything frst and choose your questions. Use your rough work
sheet to sketch the structure of your answers and to jot down concepts
and facts. You can pick up marks this way.
Answer the number of questions you are asked to. If you attempt only 2
questions when 3 are required, then youll be marked out of 67%. The 30
minutes you spent perfecting your answer to Question 1, bringing it up a
grade, has netted you about 4% more for that paper as a whole and lost
you about 20%, which you would have got for taking a stab at the third
question.
Answer the question, not something vaguely like it.
Obey the Examination Regulations.

Candidates should be in attendance at the examination centre at least a
quarter of an hour before the commencement of each examination.
They should be seated and silent at least fve minutes prior to the
commencement of all examinations and should pay strict attention to details of
emergency and safety procedures and to a rsum of examination regulations that
are provided by the Invigilator-in-Charge.
Except in exceptional circumstances and at the discretion of the Invigilator-
in-Charge, candidates:
Will not normally be admitted to the Examination Centre if they are more
than ffteen minutes late. Candidates who arrive late should notify the
invigilation team leader of their presence and wait to be seated by an
invigilator.
Will not be permitted to leave the Hall until one hour has elapsed after
the time at which the examination began (an early exit may prevent entry
by any latecomers).
Will not be allowed to return to the Examination Centre.
Candidates will not be permitted to leave the Examination Centre during the
fnal ten minutes of the examination period (this facilitates the orderly collection

Students are entitled to appeal against any
decision taken by an Assessment Board
regarding the results of assessments they have
taken. However, there must be grounds for an
appeal (as set out in the Regulations below).
Such grounds might include the effect of an illness or a family trauma
on the students performance or might be related to an alleged
irregularity in the way in which the assessment was organised and
conducted. A claim that the mark awarded was incorrect may also
be considered but only in cases where the student has a legitimate
academic reason. An appeal where the reason is I feel (or believe) that
I should have done better is not a valid academic reason and such an
appeal will be returned to the student.
Prior to lodging an appeal based on a claim that the grade awarded
was incorrect, the student must contact the School concerned and
view their assessment script. The student must meet with the module
coordinator and/or examiner and have the awarded grade explained
to him or her. Note, this is not a bargaining session for a student to
obtain a few more marks. If, after the meeting, the student still has a
valid academic ground for disputing the grade, the student can then
lodge an appeal. It is not the lecturers role to provide students with
information on appeals. Appealing is the students choice and decision
alone.
Also, class action appeals are not accepted where one student
submits an appeal on behalf of the whole class or group. Each
individual member of the class or group must submit his or her own
appeal. This is to ensure that a student who may have been happy
with the mark awarded does not have to appeal if he or she does not
want to. Appeals are individual decisions and no student should feel
pressurised to submit an appeal simply because other people may be
unhappy.
Students who are considering making an appeal should contact Dr
Cliona McGovern at email on p.131.
Any such contact will be treated in confdence.
For further details on the appeals process please see
www.ucd.ie/appeals

Here are the relevant parts of the Regulations
governing an Appeal:
Students may appeal to the Academic Council Committee on
Assessment Appeals (ACCAA) against the result of any assessment
of their work. Such an appeal may only be made after the result
of the module has been approved at a meeting of the relevant
Programme Examination Board. A student who wishes to appeal
the result of a module shall lodge the appeal, in the prescribed
format, with the Assessment Appeals Offcer.
The ACCAA will normally consider an appeal only when it
has been lodged with the Assessment Appeals Offcer within
thirty days of the date when the result of the module was
made available to the student. Only in rare and exceptional
circumstances, the Assessment Appeals Committee may, at its
absolute discretion, decide to consider an appeal at any time.
Grounds for Appeal:
The only grounds on which the ACCAA will consider an appeal are:
1) Irregularity. There is evidence of substantive irregularity in the
conduct of the assessment process.
2) Extenuating Circumstances.
2.1) There were extenuating circumstances of which the Dean
was aware but had rejected because the application was
late and the Dean did not consider the reason as to why the
application was late to be valid.
OR
2.2) The Programme Examination Board did not appreciate the
seriousness of the extenuating circumstances.
3) Incorrect grade. Following the fndings of the Schools
examination review process, a claim is made, on stated grounds,
that the grade awarded is incorrect.

Process of Appeals:
No appeal will be processed if the student does not meet any of the above grounds
or if the appeal is incomplete. The Assessment Appeals Offcer will return all such
appeals to the student and will specify the reasons as to why the appeal could
not be processed. The student can resubmit the appeal once all issues have been
addressed.
After an appeal has been processed, the Assessment Appeals Offcer shall write to
the student, acknowledging receipt of the appeal and advising the student:
That the appeal may not be successful.
That all correspondence and queries in relation to the appeal are to be
directed to the Assessment Appeals Offce.
That, pending a decision on the appeal by the ACCAA, the student should,
where possible, re-present for assessment, on the understanding that a re-
sitting of an assessment will not prejudice the decision of the ACCAA.
That the conferring of a degree or other award may be deferred, pending
the decision of the ACCAA.
That, without prejudice, the student may, where appropriate, advance to
the next stage of his or her programme, pending the decision of the ACCAA.
On receipt of an appeal in relation to a module result, the Assessment Appeals
Offcer shall send a copy of the appeal to the Head of School or another
designated person responsible for the administration of appeals in the School. The
School shall be requested to respond to the appeal within thirty days. In rare and
exceptional circumstance, the Committee reserves the right to decide in favour
of the student, should the School not co- operate with the appeals process. Such
cases will also be referred to the Registrar.
The ACCAA will require evidence of any medical or other circumstance which may
have adversely affected the students performance at the assessment. Where
evidence is submitted, such as a medical certifcate from a registered medical
practitioner, only original copies will be acceptable. If it is discovered that an
appellant has submitted fraudulent documentation with their appeal, the appeals
process will immediately cease and the appellant will be referred to the Registrar
for disciplinary action.
The ACCAA shall consider each appeal on the grounds on which it is based,
in accordance with the principles of natural justice. To assist it in coming to a
decision, the committee may consult the intern examiner(s) and the extern
examiner(s) or other appropriate persons.

Overview
Academic Regulations
The Academic Regulations are a set of
high level, overarching rules governing
the Universitys educational offerings.
Policy on Alcohol Consumption
The University regulations on the
consumption of alcohol are designed to
encourage a sensible attitude to social
drinking and prevent drunken disorder
that causes damage to property and
disruption to University activities.
Policy and guidelines on Posters and
Promotional Materials
The University policy and guidelines
on Posters govern the use of posters
to advertise Campus events and are
designed to minimise any adverse
environmental impact of this activity
on the Campus as well as prevent the

Assessment/Examination
Regulations
The University does not tolerate
academic dishonesty. Any student
found to have cheated will be dealt
with according to the UCD Student
Code, with serious consequences for
the students academic career.

entry to UCD Library. Students
should familiarise themselves with
the Librarys regulations in relation to

To safeguard individuals and to ensure
the integrity and reliability of the

of usage policies. These are designed to
ensure that the University can offer the
widest possible range of services to its
community.
Student Email Policy
To ensure effective communication,
the University uses email as an
offcial means of communication with
students. It uses UCD Connect email as

consistent basis in order to stay aware
of, and comply with, important notices
and instructions from the University.
Policy on Dignity and Respect
UCD is committed to the promotion
of an environment for work and study
that upholds the dignity and respect of
the individual and that supports every
individuals right to study and/or work
in an environment that is free of any
form of harassment, intimidation or
bullying.
Policy on Equal Opportunities
Ones actions, rather than ones genetic
or cultural inheritance or social status
are the determining factor in a persons
advancement within UCD.

1. Introduction
1.1 University College Dublin is a community of staff, students and graduates
joined together for the common purpose of the advancement and
dissemination of knowledge. Its chief offcer is the President and its chief
statutory bodies are the Governing Authority and the Academic Council.
1.2 The President, the Governing Authority and the Academic Council have
statutory responsibility, under national legislation and the Charter and
Statutes of University College Dublin, in matters concerning the conduct
and duties of the staff and students of the University. In practice, this
responsibility is often exercised through the Offcers, College Principals,
Deans, Directors of Institutes, Professors, Heads of School, lecturers or
other academic or non-academic staff, as appropriate in the daily life of the
University.
1.3 The Statutes of the University impose a duty on the Academic Council
to regulate the discipline of the students of the University and to impose
penalties for breaches of discipline, subject to the right of a student to
appeal any penalty to the Governing Authority. This code sets out these
Disciplinary Regulations. It is available, free of charge, from the Registrar of
the University, and it is published annually.
2. Norms of Behaviour
2.1 The University sustains commitment to quality in teaching, learning,
scholarship and research; emphasises the value of honesty, integrity,
commitment, engagement and achievement; and emphasises commitment
to equality, and to dignity and respect for all members of the University
community. As a consequence all members of the University community
are expected to act responsibly at all times, to observe and abide by the
Regulations of the University, and not to engage in any activity which might
bring the good name of the University into disrepute.

the directions of the Head of School or of the staff member responsible.
3.2 Students may experience a range of serious and unanticipated diffculties,
which adversely affect their ability to study, complete assessments or

The University has a policy and procedure to consider such extenuating
circumstances and is available at www.ucd.ie/registry/academicsecretariat/
pol_ext_circum.pdf . Students can obtain the Extenuating Circumstances

3.3 Should any student, during lectures and classes, or while engaged in
laboratory work, research work or feld exercises, seminars or any other
academic work, be responsible for any breach of good conduct or discipline,
or fail to obey instructions from any member of staff, or breach any
regulations, such a member of staff may require the student to withdraw
from the particular lecture or class or other academic activity; the staff
member, if they shall think ft, may bring the matter to the notice of the
Registrar or his/her nominee for appropriate action to be taken.
4. Student Conduct on Work Placements
Where students, as part of their academic programmes, obtain professional
instruction or are placed for training, professional experience or work experience
at a school, hospital, farm, company, professional practice or other workplace
(referred to below as the host institution), they should observe the following

supervisors.
4.7 Students should comply with any disciplinary procedures or processes of the
host institution or of the profession for which they are studying and shall be

142
8.1.2 The student must respond to the notifcation and make an
appointment with the Registrar or his/her nominee as soon as is
practicable. Failure to respond to the Registrar or his/her nominees
request to make an appointment will constitute a disciplinary
offence, and may result in the matter being referred directly to a
Disciplinary Committee for adjudication.
8.2 Preliminary Hearing Procedure
8.2.1 The function of a preliminary hearing is to permit the Registrar or
his/her nominee to consider the case, interact with the student
and form an opinion on the seriousness of the case. The process is
student-centred and based on natural justice.
8.2.2 Before commencement of the preliminary hearing, the Registrar
or his/her nominee shall notify the student that they are being
interviewed under the conditions laid out in the UCD Student
Code. The Registrar or his/her nominee shall also explain that it
is the students right to refer the matter directly to a Disciplinary
Committee for adjudication at any stage during the interview.
The Registrar or his/her nominee must confrm that the student
understands the process and is willing to continue.
8.2.3 The Registrar or his/her nominee will outline the allegation made
against the student and ask them to accept or reject the accusation
and offer to consider whatever submission they see ft to make in
regard to the charge.
8.2.4 The Registrar or his/her nominee may, following this meeting or
communication:
(i) Dismiss the complaint with no further action.
(ii) Impose a fne not exceeding 5% of the annual fee for Stage
1 Arts at the time the fne is imposed. The Registrar or his/
her nominee may also require a contribution by the student
towards the cost of remedying, in whole or in part, any damage
or loss caused.
(iii) Refer the matter to the Disciplinary Committee, without
making any decision as to guilt, where the Registrar or his/her
nominee considers that course of action appropriate having
regard to the gravity or nature of the charge or on account of
the complexities of the issues. Where the gravity of the matter
warrants it, the Registrar or his/her nominee may impose
a temporary suspension of the student from the University
and/or may postpone the award to the student of a degree,
diploma, certifcate, scholarship, prize or other academic award
