You are required to register for the minimum period you were originally approved for.
Research students start in January, April, July and October. Students can submit any time in their last year of study. However, if you have made changes to your registration (e.g. a leave of absence) this will change your submission date. If you are unsure of your start date, please check your original approval of admission onto the programme, taking any changes you may have made to your registration into consideration.
Please familiarise yourself with UCC's webpages for research students.
