Our postgraduate research students are involved in diverse research projects across the entire spectrum of Computer Science. The school also offers competitive funded studentships; these positions attract a tax-free scholarship as well as payment of University fees.

Completion of a PhD typically takes about 4 years full-time and 6 years part-time, after a Masters or a Bachelors degree. The School is now following UCD's Structured PhD programme. We currently have over 100 postgraduate research students, and the School has a strong international flavor, with students and academic staff from around the world
