Welcome to the Fourth Level Ireland - University Graduate Education resource website.

All Irish universities offer exceptional graduate education opportunities in all disciplines, both taught and research degree programmes. The universities are central to national policy, which seeks to enhance Ireland's innovative capacity across all economic and social sectors.

In Ireland higher education is referred to as third level education. To promote its importance and distinctiveness, graduate education is increasingly referred to as the ‘Fourth Level’.
