The School will normally consider applicants with at least a 2:1 in their undergraduate BA and a 2:1 in an appropriate Masters-level programme. Applicants should have a strong sense of the project, and its viability, they wish to pursue and are strongly encouraged to liaise with an appropriate member of the School’s staff in advance of submitting any proposal. A full list of staff and their research interests can be found at http://www.ucd.ie/history/about/staff_contacts_pictures/
Once considered by the School, all applications are forwarded to the College Graduate School Board who alone have the authority to admit research students.
Applicants whose first language is not english must meet UCD's English language requirements.
