Graduate Research Programmes

At the heart of UCD’s research strategy is the ambition to address the challenges that will shape Ireland’s future and its role in the wider world. The UCD School of Veterinary Medicine’s research programmes address key national issues including environment, energy, agri-food, health, and the development of evidence-based policy. These align with many of the current global challenges in areas such as energy, food shortage and environment.

Students undertaking graduate research degrees within the UCD School of Veterinary Medicine have an opportunity to contribute to these nationally and internationally important areas of research, while developing their knowledge of their area of research and research skills. As a School, we harness the complementary energies of research and teaching to drive graduate education. Our goal is to produce confident, highly-skilled graduates with the potential to make major contributions to the knowledge economy in Ireland and abroad.

Graduate research degrees are available at Masters and PhD level.
