Module Enrolment

DubChem module enrolment has been closed for 2016/17. If you have not yet registered, please contact Sinéad Boyce

To drop a module that you have registered for or to take an additional module not on your DubChem enrolment form, please complete the form at


TCD Chemistry Postgraduates

All of your module enrolment/exam data are held in UCD. If you are not in your first year, you will have received a UCD ID number. If you are in your first year as a postgrad, you will be assigned a UCD ID number.


Instructions for logging in to UCD’s SISWEB

  1. Go to
  2. Scroll down until you see a button called 'SISWeb'  and click on that
  3. Enter your UCD student number where requested
  4. Enter your date of birth using the format DDMMYY as the PIN
  5. Click on Login - you will then be asked to choose a new password

If you have problems logging in to SISWeb, please contact UCD's Student Desk at (01) 7161555

Please ensure that you use ONLY your UCD ID number for all DubChem-related queries/reports. For first-year postgrads and those of you who have forgotten your UCD number, you can find it in the file TCD-UCD above. I have removed the file containing module choices as it has been superseded by registration in SISWeb.

Welcome to the Dublin Chemistry Graduate Programme 2016/17


Chemistry is a pivotal discipline that lies at the crossroads of biological and physical sciences. But chemistry is more than just a central science because, with chemistry, we can shape the future or, more importantly, our graduates can. With this in mind the leading Schools of Chemistry in Ireland have come together to develop a new frontier in graduate education and training in chemistry. The modern Ph.D. student is much more than just a specialist in a very narrow area. Today’s graduate must have a broad overview of the science, well-developed problem-solving skills, the confidence to tackle a range of projects outside their particular area of expertise, and be able to communicate their results to both the scientific and lay communities.

With over forty team leaders, Dublin Chemistry offers young scientists the opportunity to conduct wide-ranging high-level research in areas such as synthetic and computational chemistry, nanochemistry, advanced materials, biological and medicinal chemistry and much, much more. Importantly, this research is supported by advanced level chemistry graduate modules and training in instrumental techniques as well as modules in communication, presentation and how to carry out effective research. To register for modules, please fill in the Module Enrolment Registration form, which is available at

The programme is organized through the Dublin Chemistry Management Committee, which meets regularly, is particularly receptive to student input, and is supported by the annual meeting of the Dublin Chemistry Steering Committee.

In this environment we will continue to nurture the next generation of scientists, who will bring new solutions to society by their enhanced understanding and control of new molecules and materials with novel physical or biological properties.

Dublin Chemistry is also working with the other Schools of Chemistry in the greater Dublin region to provide graduate modules through the Dublin Region Higher Education Alliance in Chemistry.
