In this paper we report on our work to date concerning the development of a course recommender system for University College Dublin's on-line enrolment application. We outline the factors that influence student choices and propose solutions to address some of the key considerations that are identified. We empirically evaluate our approach using historical student enrolment data and show that promising performance is achieved with our initial design. Copyright 2007 ACM.
