Ireland PhD Programme
An Irish PhD usually takes 3-4 years. Traditional doctorates focus primarily on independent research; structured programmes include additional classes and a greater focus on transferable skills. Most students initially register for an MPhil degree before upgrading to the status of PhD candidate and completing their thesis. This will be assessed through an oral viva voce process involving two examiners.View All
