Research Overview » Ireland
In Ireland all PhDs in the arts have been concentrated at GradCAM (Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media, Dublin), in which institutes from Cork, Dublin, Dun Laoghaire and Belfast take part. HAE in Ireland takes place at institutes of technology, i.e. not universities; the right to award doctorates has been delegated to GradCAM, which opened in 2008.
There are now approx. 40 PhD students and associate researchers doing a PhD at GradCAM. Funded positions are normally for four years; the stipend is approx. € 16000 annually.
