Spanish - Research
Spanish offers supervision in a number of areas of interest in both Spain and Latin America. Admission to a research degree is at the discretion of the potential supervisor and the Head of Discipline; it is based on a proposal from the applicant, following discussion with the staff member whose academic area of interest is most appropriate.
Candidates should possess an honours degree in Spanish (Second Class, Grade 1 minimum [or equivalent international qualification]).
Applications are made online via the NUI Galway Postgraduate Applications System.
