Students may read towards a PhD (3-5 years) in the Irish Department. Students are invited to apply in accordance with the general regulations as set out in the University's Graduate Prospectus. For more information please visit the Graduate Studies website.

Application is made through the Graduate Studies Office, but informal contact with the Department is strongly encouraged in order to establish the suitability of the candidate, the feasibility of the proposed topic and the nomination of a supervisor. Members of staff in the Department look after research in their own area (see Staff Research).


Prospective Students may apply for various Scholarships - there is information available on the Graduate Studies website regarding opportunities for Irish, EU and Non-EU students.

We also have a Scholarship specifically for research into modern Irish - the Henry Flood Scholarship, and you will find information regarding the application process for 2023-24 in this PDF. Click here.
