School of Postgraduate Studies

The School of Postgraduate Studies is the conduit for fourth level education at RCSI. The School oversees higher degrees (PhDMDMCh and MSc) by research, postdoctoral training and workshops for supervisors and thesis examiners. It also oversees taught Masters programmes within the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.

Niamh MoranWe strive to ensure that all these activities are carried out to the highest standards and that appropriate codes of practice are followed. The School of Postgraduate Studies assists postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers to become fully incorporated into life at RCSI and that they are afforded an optimum environment for personal, scholarly and career development.

The School aims to enhance the quality of all aspects of the postgraduate and postdoctoral experience, both academic and social. We are delighted to work with the Postgraduate Students Union, which promotes peer interaction through organised activities and meetings.

Many specific questions about postgraduate and postdoctoral training are answered here. However, if you have any further questions, please email us at postgraduateschool@rcsi.ie
