To be eligible for consideration to undertake a programme of study for a Master’s degree by Research, a candidate must have obtained a standard of at least second class honours in an approved primary degree or equivalent. Normally the duration of studies leading to the degree of Masters (Research) is two academic years from the date of admission on the Masters register. Students will complete a research methodologies module and will have at least two designated supervisors. They will have access to IADT facilities including library, computers, hot-desks and student services. A small student travel fund exists.

IADT advertises research projects which applicants may wish to apply for periodically. In addition, IADT is interested to hear from prospective past-graduate students at any time. Applicants may propose research ideas and IADT will attempt to find matching supervisors.

Depending on funding availability, fees remission and/or stipends may be available and this will be made clear in any advertisement. Where stipends and fees remission are not available fees are payable. In 2015/16 the fees are €4,500 per annum.
