Module Electives - what are they?
Electives give you the opportunity to choose modules that you want to study.
Each Semester you will be given a choice of a number of modules and you will be asked to select a certain amount to study. This can range from 1 module to 4 modules, based on the course.
For example, you may be given a list of 4 modules, and will be asked to choose 2 to study for the upcoming semester.
Course Pathways - what are they?
A course pathway, or elective stream, is where you choose a particular area to specialise in within the broader course.
The pathway you choose will influence the modules you can study each semester and will be recognised in your final degree as an area of expertise.
For example, if you are studying Applied languages you are required to specialise in 2 languages from a selection of French, German, Irish and Spanish.
