UCC offers 12 Excellence Scholarships every year to applicants who intend to start a Taught Masters or MRes in the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences in September 2017.

The scholarships are for one year full-time or two years part-time only and are not extendable for any reason. If the Taught Programme is officially of two years’ duration, then the scholarship can be renewed for a second year, subject to satisfactory reports from the student and supervisor at the end of Year 1.
