Yeats, and language acquisition and teaching. These areas reflect just some of the diverse research strengths and areas of expertise with the Faculty. We have a number of research groups, centres and clusters that reflect particular areas of research excellence and impact within the Faculty, and which regularly organise events, lectures and seminars.

About postgraduate research

A research degree involves an in-depth study of a specific topic which is then written up as a thesis. At the University of Limerick, you can apply for a Masters by research (MA), Research Doctoral (PhD) or Structured PhD (SPhD). On average a research degree takes between two to four years to complete. You can apply anytime during the year, and you can apply straight after your undergraduate degree.
