ESTABLISHED in 1988, The Institute of Irish Studies at Liverpool University is one of the world’s leading institutes for the teaching and research of Irish Studies.
This year, the Institute is pleased to announce the offer of five new undergraduate bursaries of £2,000 each towards first year student fees for 2013-2014 applicants.
For further information all you have to do is contact The Institute of Irish Studies on 0151 794 3837 before Friday, May 24. Awards will be subject to fulfilling the University’s entry requirements.
Irish Studies’ students have gone on to successful careers in management, media, teaching, law, academia, research, politics and business.
During the course of your Irish Studies degree, as well as receiving top-class teaching by world-class lecturers, you will be given the unique opportunity to meet and network with high profile speakers who have influenced the world around us (presidents, Nobel Prize winners, business leaders, high profile politicians, and world-class academics, who could potentially aid and influence your future career).
Irish President, Michael D. Higgins, for example, delivered a lecture on Liverpool and its Irish migrants and met with students in November 2012.
Also, students at the Institute of Irish Studies have an opportunity to join the ‘Washington Ireland Program’ (WIP).
This is a unique competitive scholarship which consists of a six-month programme of personal and professional development, culminating in spending six weeks in Washington DC.
During their placement participants can take part in a diverse range of work including congressional offices, government departments and a range of high profile companies.
Since the University has become a WIP partner, the Institute of Irish Studies has had a 100 per cent success rate in getting a student onto the programme each year.
