Thanks so much guys! I hadn't heard anything back from them up until now, so I was just getting a little worried. Has anyone found accommodation in Dublin yet?

I'm going to be staying with family so I haven't had to look! Have you tried the ucd accommodation websites?

Have you tried looking on the sharing section of daft.ie? You might find something there.

I was worried that GEM-course required us to pay the €3000 student contribution, but we're exempt from that!! ;

I hope it's the same for the other Medical Schools.

Thanks! I've tried daft.ie and have been looking on the UCDSU accommodation fb page. I have a few viewings lined up, so fingers crossed something comes along soon! Has anyone registered yet? Or got their UCD email - I can't seem to access it yet! I've clicked on the mail icon on the UCD Connect homepage and tried to sign in with my CAO number and date of birth there, but it's not working. Am I doing something wrong?

Scroll down and click on SISWEB. You should be able to use the CAO number and DOB to sign in then. You'll then be prompted to change your password.

I've registered! We can't select our modules until next week, but that's just a formality for us anyway as all 70 credits are compulsory for first year.

There's the option to take a summer project (SSRA) during the summer after first year, with the credits assigned to second year. I vaguely remember reading somewhere that they're assigned based on academic performance and/or interview.

For those who don't do a summer project, there's two 5 credit modules available instead.

Has everyone got their start times for module registration? And does anyone know if we wanted to take a summer project after first year, would we have to show interest in this now during registration or at a later stage?

Yep, I got tomorrow at 11:00. The credits associated with the summer projects are assigned to second year so I don’t think we need to register for them now.

How did your registration go - was it pretty straightforward? Mine is not until tomorrow morning

UCD orientation doesn't start until the 5th! I hope you are getting settled in and enjoying Cork so far, it's meant to be a beautiful city to live!

Oh and have you uploaded a photo for your student card yet? I am alone in my house at the moment, so I don't know how accepting they would be or how comfortable I would feel about uploading a selfie haha.

I uploaded a selfie. It was accepted and I don’t really care how it looks to be honest.

Everything was pre-registered already. I noticed the modules were all on blackboard last night before I registered. You probably have access to them too even if you can’t register until tomorrow. Looks like we’ve a lot of work ahead of us!
