Postgraduate Research Opportunities - Update

We are approaching that time of year when increasing numbers are contacting College about the possibilities of doing postgraduate research towards either an MSc or PhD.

We are very happy to encourage prospective postgraduates to apply to the University to carry out research with the Water Technology Research Group. While we do not have any funded places available at the present time (these are widely advertised when they become available) we still encourage self-financing students and those who can obtain funding from their employer, home Institution and Government.

In the first instance please go to the link at our Graduate Studies Office and read all the terms and conditions that apply to potential applicants. You will notice that all applications are now on-line and are centralized for Ireland.  However, before making a formal application for a higher degree you should first discuss possible projects with us and funding implications. Please contact me at

Details of funding available within Ireland can be accessed at via the Graduate Studies Office website.


  1. Li has asked about fees. Full details are given at

    but essentially for a full time PhD the basic fee is 6.085 euro for EU and 12,085 euro for non-EU students. There are of course living expenses on top of this and there may also be some project costs, although depends on the project etc. and you would need to discuss this with me. We can help you with accommodation, English and preliminary courses in areas where you may need further help/support. So the best thing is to contact either myself ( or one of my colleagues and discuss your needs.

    Best wishes

  2. In response to another enquiry we do ensure that International Students are made to feel welcome and at home. The College does provide a wide range of support and this will be significantly extended next year. So there is a range of general as well as Faculty level orientation and support courses.
