Gender, Globalisation and Rights

Global Women's Studies: Gender, Globalisation and Rights ( Traditional PhD) 

Traditional PhD students are not required to complete taught modules. Their thesis accounts for the full 360 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System units) required to earn the PhD. As in the case of the structured PhD, the traditional PhD programme emphasises the central role of independent research; all PhD students are expected to make a distinctive, original and publishable contribution to knowledge. Traditional PhD students in Global Women’s Studies are encouraged to participate in relevant taught modules although they are not required to do so. The traditional PhD route is most suitable for part-time students. It may also be suitable for students with considerable prior experience and training in their chosen topic and for students who are self-funded. Any student who commences PhD studies as a traditional PhD student and who subsequently secures a doctoral fellowship under any of the NUIG fellowship schemes must transfer to the structured PhD mode. Any PhD student who is working more than 5 hours per week in paid work unrelated to their research is not eligible to enrol in the fulltime PhD programme.
