Study Options

A Study Abroad student must select courses that will fulfil the academic requirements of his/her home institution. Students can take up to 6 modules per semester (30 credits) and 12 modules (60 credits) for the full year. Module choice can, where possible, cross disciplines but students must take timetable and examination scheduling into consideration when making their selection. 

All Study Abroad students have a two-week trial period on their initial module choice. This ensures that the modules selected are at an appropriate level and that students make the right choices to get the most from their learning experience.

All Study Abroad students participate in WIT’s Orientation programme, which takes place before the start of each semester.

 

Entry Requirements

Entry requirements for Study Abroad students are 2.7 GPA cum. (min) at a recognised U.S. university or college or 60% average grades at university. You may apply directly through your home institute or through the above ‘APPLY HERE’ link. We do not accept students into first or final year studies.

“I love my study abroad experience at WIT because I am living and learning, not visiting. I am gaining new perspectives via immersing myself in WIT’s educational program and Ireland’s culture.”
