How to Apply


How you apply to the University will depend on whether you are a school leaver, a mature student or have already completed a course of study at third level, whether you are an EU or non-EU applicant and on whether you wish to study a full-time or a part- time course. Full details of how to apply can be found on the Academic Registry website.

Ph.D. studentships and Postdoctoral research opportunities:

Applicants must contact the Department in which they intent to undertake research. Postgraduate research students are admitted by the Dean of Graduate Studies on the advice of the Head of the Department and the Dean of the Faculty in which the applicant intends to undertake research. Places will be offered only to well-qualified applicants for whom the supervision of the research has been arranged. Generally no closing date applies for application for degrees by research only. However, there are certain exceptions, all of which are noted in the appropriate departmental entries. Please see also the relevant TCD webpages for more information. .
