NFQ Level 8, Major Award
Students enter Second Science Geoscience through the First Science Area of Study: Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences (CK404) provided they have passed First Science.
The Fourth Science Research Project or Mapping Project must be passed for the award of a BSc (Hons) Degree.
The selection of elective modules in Third and Fourth Years may depend on the student having the necessary prerequisites. Elective modules must, therefore, be chosen in consultation with the appropriate Head of Discipline. In exceptional cases, the Academic Board of the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the College will be prepared to consider applications for alternative elective modules in Third Year. Modules that have been taken and passed in one year of study may not be re-taken in a subsequent year.
BSc Ordinary Degree - NFQ Level 7, Major Award
Students who pass Third Year may choose not to proceed to Fourth Year and may opt instead to be conferred with a BSc Ordinary Degree.
