Graduate Research

LIT provides a physical, intellectual, social and cultural environment, which is conducive to the successful pursuit of independent academic research. Good research practice should grow out of good practice in teaching and learning. Relevant research activity can enhance and should never compromise the quality of teaching and learning at Higher Certificate, Bachelor Degree, Honours Bachelor Degree and Taught Master’s Level.

LIT is a Higher Education provider and QQI awards Masters and Doctor of Philosophy Degrees to research candidates who successfully complete programmes of supervised research registered by QQI. Successful completion requires that learners are assessed as having attained the standard specified by LIT/QQI for the relevant Research Degree. LIT maintains approved provider status under approval and accreditation levels to supervise awards at Level 9 and 10.
