The School of Mathematical Sciences welcomes enquiries from prospective research students.

Information for Future Research Students

Application Procedure

Application Procedure

Prospective students should look at Staff Research Interests to get an idea of which academic staff might be suitable supervisors. They are encouraged to contact these directly. Before an application to become a postgraduate student can be made, the potential student must obtain the agreement of a staff member to act as a supervisor. A description of the proposed research project is also required.

More details of the application procedure can be found at How to apply to DCU to become a postgraduate student.
