Flexilearn.ie

In addition to registration with your institute, it is critically important to record your interest in taking a module here. This website is used by many lecturers to communicate with students taking their modules. Furthermore, in order to ensure the continued delivery of the inter-institutional modules, we need to demonstrate the demand for the modules and this is carried out using the student stats from the flexilearn website.

  Where are the lecture rooms?

A map of main campus locations can be found here.

 

 

The Inter-institutional modules are provided by our academic partners in the INSPIRE and ICGEE GREPs
