If undergraduate examination results are not known at the time of application, Maynooth University may make a provisional offer of a scholarship on condition that the scholar’s bachelor’s (orequivalent) degree result is a first class or upper second-class honours.
If a scholar does not have a first class or upper second-class honours bachelor’s degree (or equivalent), they must possess a master’s degree in the discipline of the department of application or cognate discipline as approved by proposed supervisor.
Degrees may be from Ireland, the EU or from any international university. Equivalency of degrees awarded and results obtained outside of Ireland will be determined by the Dean of Graduate Studies.
In certain cases, where a higher diploma operates as a master’s qualifier, the higher diploma result can be considered equivalent to a primary degree.
Applicants in the final year of the qualifying degree apply on the basis of expected results. Should results be unavailable at the time of award offers, applicants with the highest ranking will be made conditional offers, subject to confirmation of the award of a bachelor’s degree with first class or upper second-class honours (or equivalent).
If the required qualification is not achieved, the university shall deem the applicant ineligible and rescind the conditional offer.
