Studying Individual Modules (Link-In Occasional)

A link-in occasional applicant is one who applies to the university to take up to three modules of study without enrolling on a full programme of study. This allows candidates to experience higher education without committing to a full programme of study.

Students enrolled on a link-in occasional basis should note the following:

  1. There is no final award associated with the completion of a link-in occasional programme.
  2. Link-in occasional students cannot accumulate credits by continuously enrolling on a link-in basis in a way that will result in a final award, regardless of the cumulative value of these credits.
  3. There are no formal entry requirements. However, candidates should ensure that they are familiar with the content of the modules they wish to take by consulting with the relevant Faculties and/or Departments within the University.
  4. Candidates may take modules on examination basis or on an attendance-only basis
  5. Students are not entitled to be admitted onto another course of study at UL by virtue of their performance in link-in occasional modules. If a candidate seeks admission onto another programme of study, the normal entry criteria and selection procedures will apply. 

Please note:
This scheme is not for current UL students who wish to take modules additional to those required by their course of study. Information for those students can be found on the Registration page.

There are no formal entry requirements for link-in occasional students; however, candidates should ensure that they are familiar with the content of the modules they wish to take by consulting with the relevant Faculties and/or Departments within the University.

The closing date for receipt of applications is the 1st week of the Semester.
