Masters Degree (NFQ Level 9)

SETU offers two types of Masters degree programme: taught Masters programmes and research Masters programmes.

The taught Masters degree is awarded following the completion of a programme of one to two years duration (typically 90 ECTS credits). Entry to a taught programme leading to a Masters award is typically for holders of Honours Bachelor degrees. In certain circumstances, entry to such programmes may be considered for holders of Ordinary Bachelor Degrees or equivalent.

Research Masters Degree programmes are typically of two years duration (typically 90 ECTS credits) where learners undertake a substantial piece of research. The project is carried out under the guidance of an experienced supervisor. Learning outcomes at this level relate to the demonstration of knowledge and understanding at the forefront of a field of learning.  Outcomes relate to the application of knowledge, understanding and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar contexts related to the field of study. The outcomes are associated with an ability to integrate knowledge, handle complexity and formulate judgements.

An Irish Masters Degree is compatible with completion of the Bologna Second Cycle.
