For the Academic Year 2014/15 Semesterisation will be unrolled across University College Cork. What does it mean for you? Semesterisation will involve a week of exams before Christmas and exams in May. This will split the amount of exams you have across two different time periods and reduce the amount of work you have to do in one sitting removing the emphasis on the May exams.
The only other difference that will be from the current system is that we will start college a week earlier next year. in a long term aspect it will allow students more flexibility in their module selection by introducing a credit transfer system which will bring us in line with European practice and allow for students to take terms abroad much earlier and to tailor their degrees better.
