Interested in doing a PhD?
Individuals interested in pursuing a Postgraduate Research programme in the area of Disability should contact Dr Fintan Sheerin and arrange an appointment to discuss their research interests. A provisional proposal should be available for discussion at this meeting. If the proposal is deemed suitable a supervisor would then be identified and agreed on. Once this has been established the candidate may then proceed to make their application.
