Course Application

Applicants must submit their course application directly to the college or academic department in question and NOT to Irish Aid.

Please note the following:

  1. Some colleges in Ireland only accept applications online. Applicants should complete the correct application form for the course and college to which they wish to apply and use the correct course title, code and institution name as indicated in the Directory of Postgraduate Courses Suitable for Fellowship Awards-2013
  2. Failure to do so may result in applications being misdirected.
  3. When submitting course applications, it is essential that applicants forward certified true photocopies of exam results or degree certificates. Uncertified photocopies are not acceptable.
  4. Take care. Incomplete course applications will take longer to process and may result in missing an application deadline.
  5. Decisions on course place offers will often not be available before applicants submit their Irish Aid Fellowship application forms. Irish universities normally issue course acceptance letters in May or June. Therefore, it should be indicated CLEARLY in the Irish Aid fellowship application forms whether one has applied for a course and if acceptance is pending. It is recommended that applicants include photocopies of any course applications and acceptance letters when submitting their fellowship application forms.
