Postgraduate Study

In 2009 over 12% of Limerick Institute of Technology graduates went on to some form of further study.

What are the options?

 There are three types of postgraduate qualification:

    Postgradutes Certificate or Diploma: These are usually one-year taught programmes which either lead to a professional qualification or allow graduates acquire skills in other areas. Typical examples are the Graduate Diploma in Education or Graduate Diploma in Computing. There is currently a vast range of courses available in Universities, Institutes of Technology, or private colleges. In the cases of some of the 'conversion' courses in special skill areas, course fees are subsidised.
  • Masters Degree: Masters degrees can be taught or by research. Taught courses typically take one year for full-time study and two years for part-time study. Research degrees can take anything from one year to about five years, depending on how long it takes to complete the research.
  • Doctorate: A Doctorate or PhD programme usually takes a minimum of three to five years to complete. It may be possible to follow a structured programme for part of the time but in many cases the research is self-driven with supervision from a faculty member.
