Applying for a postgraduate degree In the first instance please contact the member of staff whose research interests are most closely allied to your own. He or she will then discuss potential research ideas with you and depending on funding then they may be prepared to act as your supervisor. Following agreement with a potential supervisor, a formal application to register must be made through Graduate Studies. Please read the application procedures. Funded research student ships are widely advertized in the press and also via the Graduate Studies Office website. Opportunities exist for both full time and part-time in-service degrees.
A wide range of Continuing Professional Development Courses (CPD) are offered by Professor N.F. Gray. These are usually one-day courses and are a mixture of lectures and practical sessions. One day courses are all equivalent to 0.5 ECTS while two day courses are equivalent to 1 ECTS. They are open to all those who hold some relevant third level qualification or who already have professional experience in the specific area. They also act as feeder courses to the postgraduate diploma and degree programmes that can be done either full-time or part-time.
