It is possible to change from a Research Masters to a PhD (or vice-versa). Please note it is not possible to change from a taught programme to a research programme or vice-versa.
In order to change your programme you will need to complete a Research Registration Change Request Form and get this signed by your supervisory team and head of school. In certain you may will need to complete a progress review before you will be able to change from one programme to another. Once you have submitted the Change Request Form, the relevant School/College will consider your request and we will email you once a decision has been made with details of completing your new registration. Your student record will then be updated.
Please familiarise yourself with UCC's webpages for research students.
