Joint Honors Mathematics: Senior Fresh yearThis page refers to all combinations except for Mathematics and Economics.
When it comes to their Senior Fresh year, students have three different options.
- The first option is the Single Honors option which leads to a Single Honors degree: students drop one of their subjects and take 40 ECTS credits in their other subject along with 20 ECTS credits in Open Modules & Trinity Electives.
- The second option is the most flexible option which may lead to a Single Honors degree or a Joint Honors degree or one with a Major and a Minor: students take 40 ECTS credits in one subject and 20 ECTS credits in the other.
- Finally, the third option may lead to either a Joint Honors degree or one with a Major and a Minor: students take 20 ECTS credits in each subject along with 20 ECTS credits in Open Modules & Trinity Electives.
Open Modules & Trinity ElectivesStudents who take 20 ECTS credits in Open Modules & Trinity Electives have access to a variety of options. The list below refers to the modules that are available through the Mathematics component of the Joint Honors degree, but there is also a more thorough list on the College web page about Open Modules. These modules are generally allocated on a first come first served basis, but the Mathematical Physics module MAU23403 has a quota that is high enough to accommodate all students.
Semester 1 Open Modules
- CSU11021 Introduction to computing I
- CSU11081 Computers and society
- MAU23403 Equations of mathematical physics I - Prof. Manuela Kulaxizi
- TE1 Trinity Electives
Semester 2 Open Modules

General regulations for undergraduate students
The general regulations that apply to all undergraduate students are outlined in the College Calendar (Part II). The following is only a brief summary of some important points and it is not meant to either replace or override the information in the College Calendar.
- All students must register for 60 ECTS credits and those must be divided equally between the two terms.
- Students will only be assessed on their registered modules.
- Results for examinations are published according to the following grades: I = 70 to 100, II.1 = 60 to 69, II.2 = 50 to 59, III = 40 to 49, F1 = 30 to 39, F2 = 0 to 29.
- In order to pass an individual module, students must achieve an overall score of 40% or higher.
- In order to pass the year, students must achieve an overall
credit-weighted average of 40% and EITHER
- pass each of their modules (by achieving 40% or higher in each of their modules) OR
- pass by compensation (by achieving 40% or higher in modules that are worth at least 50 ECTS credits and by achieving 35% or higher in their remaining modules).
- Students who do not pass the year at the end of the Hilary term are required to present for reassessment at the beginning of the next Michaelmas term. These students will be reassessed in all failed components of the modules for which they obtained a score below 40%.
- Students who do not manage to pass the year at the reassessment session must repeat the year in full (i.e., they must repeat all their modules and all their assessment components).
These regulations apply since the academic year 2018/19.

- All students should study the requirements of the university with regard to avoiding plagiarism. In particular all students are required to certify, on submitting assignments etc., that they have read and understood the plagiarism provisions in the General Regulations of the University Calendar for the current year found at http://www.tcd.ie/calendar, and that they have also completed the Online Tutorial on avoiding plagiarism ‘Ready Steady Write’ located at http://tcd-ie.libguides.com/plagiarism/ready-steady-write.
- Student Guidelines concerning Examinations and Assessment are available on the College web site.
- For students with special requirements resulting from disabilities, there are special arrangements that can be made.
- For dates of terms and other College dates consult the Key Dates listed on the College website.
- For information on their academic progress, including information on course and module registrations, lecture timetables, examination timetables and examination results, students should log into My.tcd.ie (the student administration portal) with their College username and password.
- Some modules may require students to log into MyModule (Blackboard) for lecture notes and slides, and for assessment purposes (online completion of tests , submission of assignments, etc.).
- There is a Student Homepage on the College website, which may be accessed via a link from the TCD Local page.
