If you're planning to apply to a PhD programme in UCD you must research your target programme and contact a potential supervisor before you begin the application process.
Your application will be reviewed by the School Graduate Committee and then the College Graduate School Board to determine your suitability to take a place on your chosen PhD programme. Your application will be assessed on the basis of your academic qualifications, the alignment of the proposed research with the Schools academic strategy, your personal statement and, where relevant, your English language proficiency. Only when you have been approved by the College Graduate School Board will you be eligible to register to the PhD programme. For this reason it is prudent that you make your application about two months prior to your expected start date. You can register for a PhD in UCD in September, January or May.
