Postgraduate work in Trinity College Dublin is very academically challenging and as a result the University has high academic entry requirements.
Applicants will need to hold:
at least a 2.1 honors degree from an Irish university or equivalent result from a university in another country
a fluent command of the English language
Some courses may require higher standards or require you to take further tests or attend an interview.
Postgraduate Research Degrees
All students undertaking a research degree are assigned to a single principal supervisor. The supervisors role is essentially that of an academic guide and mentor.
If you plan to carry out your degree by research, you are advised to contact the appropriate School with your research proposal and arrange a suitable supervisor before submitting your application. You should initially consult the School website for further information.
Research students are placed either directly on the Ph.D. register or on the Masters register. Research students on the Masters register may then transfer to the Ph.D. register if their progress has been satisfactory. Such transfers usually occur during the second year of full-time study.
In exceptional circumstances it may be possible to register retrospectively. Applicants wishing to be considered for retrospective admission should contact the Graduate Studies Office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
