How to apply

M.Sc. students

Students interested in applying for one of the M.Sc. programmes offered by the School of Natural Sciences should look at the individual entry requirements listed for each of the programmes.  

Ph.D. students

To explore the possibilities for Ph.D. research in Geology please see the Research Opportunities page.

The first step in the application process is to contact the member of staff whose research interests are most closely aligned with your own. It is normal for Ph.D. students to have funding in place to cover fees and living expenses for the 3 to 4 years of the programme. If you are looking for funding to do a Ph.D. explore the Funding Opportunities page. Applications can be made at any time of the year and the Ph.D. programme can start in either March or September.

If a member of staff agrees to support your application for a Ph.D. then the next step is to apply for the programme. For general details on how to apply for this course at Trinity College Dublin click here.
