Thesis writing

Getting started.

Find out what you are expected to do by:

  • Attending department based orientation and technical programs
  • Read course handbooks
  • Read the Graduate Students Office guidelines
  • Books and websites on dissertation writing
  • Look for previous dissertations in the library

Managing your writing

Set up your dissertation files – a separate file for each section (See session on “Planning thesis production using MS Word”) Cover page – see your handbook Formalities – see Graduate Studies Office's guidelines References/bibliography Appendices Key words Abstract List of Tables and Figures Ethics statement Statement of original authorship Acknowledgements Table of contents

Chapters (set up one file for each chapter)

  • Chapter 1. Introduction and overview
  • Chapter 2. Literature review
  • Chapter 3. Research question
  • Chapter 4. Methodology
  • Chapter 5. Results
  • Chapter 6. Discussion
  • Chapter 7. Summary and conclusions

Free up headspace

  • Write down everything you can so that you do not need to keep it in short term memory
  • Do not write sequentially and be prepared to leave gaps
  • Copy and paste into the appropriate chapter any material you have already written including preliminary reference sections or bibliographies (see sessions on EndNote)
  • Set up a “recycle” file. Do not delete any paragraph you write.  Save it because you may be able to reuse it somewhere else.

Structure each chapter

  • Tell ";em what you're goin to tell "em (8)
  • Tell "em (2)
  • Tell "em what you told "em (6)

E.g. Chapter 1

  • Introduction
  • What the thesis is about (write now)
  • What the chapters say (write after they are written)
  • Summary and conclusion and
  • Why the research is important (write anytime you work this out)

Figuring out what your research is about

  • Free up headspace then focus specifically on your research question and write it down
  • Use research seminars, study groups, conferences and peers to get feedback on your idea
  • Make sure it is expressed in terms that your peers can understand
  • Discuss the refined statement with your supervisor and reach agreement as early in the process as possible
  • Identify the tasks that need to be done to complete each chapter
  • Estimate how long each task will take
  • Use planning tools such as Gantt Charts to establish important sequences
  • Enter start dates, milestones and completion dates in your diary
  • Review and revise regularly
  • Hopelessly inaccurate estimates are much more efficient than no estimates at all

Planning and Management

Having short-term and long-term goals as well as a realistic plan will help you manage your progress and ensure you generate effective content.

  • Set task targets with your supervisor
  • Make maximum use of resources
  • Get your material reviewed by peers (seminars, conferences, publish)
  • Make contact with people doing similar research (network)

Managing content and process

  • Make maximum use the library and resources (see library sessions)
  • Get your material reviewed by peers (seminars, conferences)
  • Staying motivated
  • Rewards for progress
  • Graph your word-count (chapters and refs only)
  • Keep a journal of your progress recording how you solved problems and overcame difficulties
  • Manage social support
  • Keep your sense of humour

Postgraduate study in the School of Mathematics

The School is small and the setting is informal which encourages close contact with staff, postdoctoral fellows, visiting scholars and fellow postgraduate students. The workshops and guests of the School's Hamilton Mathematics Institute, TCD in addition to its joint seminars with the School of Theoretical Physics of the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies and TCD's three neighbouring universities provide a stimulating intellectual backdrop to a student's stay at TCD.

There are no formal course requirements for those pursuing a degree by research, but research students are expected to participate fully in appropriate seminars. Prospective students are expected to have achieved at least a II.1 degree and to have the necessary background to pursue advanced study in their chosen field of research. For an M.Sc. candidate the focus is on writing a substantial thesis that takes account of previously published results but which falls short of the originality expected of a Ph.D. thesis. Following evidence of initial work on a thesis topic an M.Sc. candidate may apply to transfer to the Ph.D. register after the first year. For research degrees, the range of topics is limited by the expertise and availability of supervisors within the School. See the topics below.

The college handbook on postgraduate research can be found here and provides many details regarding research masters and PhD programmes. The regulations governing postgraduate studies are found in Part III of the College Calendar .

Entry Requirements

Postgraduate work in Trinity College Dublin is very academically challenging and as a result the University has high academic entry requirements.

Applicants will need to hold:

  • at least a 2.1 honors degree from an Irish university or equivalent result from a university in another country
  • a fluent command of the English language

Some courses may require higher standards or require you to take further tests or attend an interview.

Postgraduate Research Degrees

All students undertaking a research degree are assigned to a single principal supervisor. The supervisor’s role is essentially that of an academic guide and mentor.

If you plan to carry out your degree by research, you are advised to contact the School of Mathematics with your research proposal and arrange a suitable supervisor before submitting your application. You should initially consult the School website for further information.

Virtually all research students are initially placed on the Masters register. They may then transfer to the Ph.D. register if their progress has been satisfactory. Such transfers usually occur during the second year of full-time study.

Confirmation to the PhD registry

The confirmation to the PhD registry should occur within the first 18 months from a student's first enrolment, namely, by the end of September for students who started in March, and by the end of February for those who started in September.

The confirmation procedure serves to ensure that you are making sufficient progress on your PhD research and to give you a head start in writing your thesis.

For confirmation to the PhD registry, students are required to:

  • Write a 20-page report on their work. Students are advised to discuss their report with their supervisor before submitting it to the director of postgraduate studies. Their report should be finalised approximately one month before the 18-month period, at the very latest.
  • Give a short (approximately 20-minute) talk on their research, after submitting their report to their supervisor, another academic (the reader) and the director of postgraduate studies.
  • Complete the 5-credit Blackboard module on Research Integrity and Impact, ideally within the first 6 months.

Viva-voce presentations

Here is the list of steps that PhD students and their supervisors are required to follow as they organise the viva-voce.

  • Complete the "Intention to submit" form at least 1 month (and preferably 7 weeks) prior to the submission date for the thesis (which is listed below).
  • Submit the "external examiner application form" 10 weeks before the viva voce.
  • Submit the thesis to the Academic Registry at least 9 weeks before the viva voce.
  • If electronic submission is chosen, as recommended, the thesis will be sent directly from the Academic Registry to the external examiner.
  • Internal and External examiners should receive guidelines for filling in the relevant forms: a pre-viva form (one for each examiner) and a post viva form, which one of the examiners (usually the internal examiner) completes and sends to the Academic Registry.

Research Topics

Pure mathematics.

The main thrust is in analysis, especially partial differential equations, and also operator algebras, operator theory and complex analysis.

  • Partial Differential Equations
  • Functional analysis
  • Complex analysis and geometry
  • History of Mathematics

Theoretical Physics

  • String Theory
  • Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics
  • Quantum Field Theory
  • Research in High-Performance Computing

Students Testimonials

Kevin Dowling (MDP Graduate 2022)

For me, the beauty of the MDP was that it offered a broad exploration of the development system overall, while also allowing considerable opportunity for students to focus on more niche areas of interest, and to individualize assignments accordingly. In this way, I felt as though I graduated with a specialty, while maintaining the benefits of a more generalist viewpoint.  From the wide breadth of modules covered, to the faculty’s expertise and dedication, the programme set me up well for securing employment soon after, despite this representing a relatively big career shift for me. I’m really grateful for that.  

Ben Davison (MDP Graduate 2022)

My experiences as a volunteer at a local city-based foodbank highlighted to me the reality of the inequality that exists, not only in a generic, untouchable, global sense, but right on my doorstep in the city that I was living. These experiences led to me considering the idea of devoting my career to development (development in what sense? – I did not yet know!). As I explored different masters options or other potential avenues, the Masters in Development Practice (MDP) at Trinity College Dublin stood out to me due to the interdisciplinary nature of the programme, and its practical approach.

I did not regret my decision to enrol in the MDP programme as I enjoyed the range of topics we studied from  Development Economics  to  Gender and Development  to  Sustainable Agriculture and Land Use.  This range of disciplines gave us a wealth of insight on the potential approaches that exist to pursue development and reduce inequalities throughout the world today, and the relationships between these different approaches. The nature of the programme also allowed me to consider where I felt I could offer a real contribution in the realm of development. Furthermore, I had the opportunity to work with an Irish NGO on my thesis which offered me the chance to learn practically and to produce a piece of work useful to a real life organisation operating within the humanitarian sector.

Having graduated from the programme, I now feel better equipped - with more insight, capabilities and confidence – to pursue my career within the field of development.

Esther Breffka (MDP Graduate 2021)

I was particularly interested in pursuing the MDP at TCD for its holistic and critical approach towards the subject and process of study. Given the practice-oriented structure (three mandatory practical components), the two-years full-time MDP provided the opportunity to explore issues and challenges of development practice in theory and practice from a multi-faceted perspective.

One of the classes I enjoyed most was taught by Prof Murphy who as a practitioner and academic herself, shared her passion about climate and gender justice in a truly engaging and thought-provoking manner. She encouraged us to think critically - challenge existing norms, systems and approaches – and consider how we could apply our learnings in specific contexts with concrete impact.

A truly rewarding experience to me was the collaborative approach of learning from and with this new generation of passionate and critical thinkers. Throughout the entire programme, I felt inspired by the MDP family - a small cohort of fellows from diverse contexts striving towards extending their knowledge, thinking critically and being extremely aware of their social positionality. Together, we built a community of practice and care, for which I am deeply grateful.

Given its global nature, the MDP allows to study sustainable development from a context-sensitive and global systems perspective. Certain courses and workshops are hold at a global level and taken together with the global MDP fellows which opens horizons through discussing issues and challenges of sustainable development across geo-spatial boundaries, and building a global community of practitioners.

Andrew Neill (MDP Graduate 2019)

The MDP program was a fantastic pathway for me to explore the topics I am really passionate about, while also broadening my awareness and understanding of other development problems. Studying with classmates and lecturers with a range of lived experiences and expertise is an asset to the course for all involved. For me, the international placements were the highlight of the program and helped inform the decisions I would make upon graduating. I would recommend to any student to make the most of those opportunities as they build valuable research and professional skills that have been useful long after finishing the MDP.

Grace Duffy (MDP Graduate 2013)

I started the MDP course in Dublin after volunteering in East Africa over the course of two summers, and wanting to learn more about ‘how the world works’. What really attracted me to this particular course was the opportunity to partner the academic learning with field/work placements. My research placement was in Kigali, Rwanda, where I researched legislation on gender-based violence, I also secured a place with UN Women in New York, working with the Donor Relations & Reporting Team. I’ve found that having this element of practical experience to complement the academic experience has definitely helped me moving forward into the work place.  

Before I started the MDP, I wasn’t sure how I could apply my undergraduate degree in engineering to the course. I soon learned that the course draws on the widely varied knowledge, skills and experiences, both of the students and module coordinators. From research and statistics to project management; from economics to conflict, and so on. In this way, we could not only employ our different strengths, but also learn from others in areas that we might feel weaker. I enjoyed the course, and would recommend anyone seeking a course in development to consider undertaking the MDP.  

Emmanuel Hakizimfura (MDP graduate 2013)

The combination of the theory and practice has made me feel and live the uniqueness of the Masters in Development Practice, an interdisciplinary program. Interactive sessions with development practitioners, worldwide high profile pundits of Sustainable Development from different angles through live seminars, lectures and simulation-fashioned exercises have altogether enriched my understanding of the world, particularly development problems & prospects and international development cooperation, in addition to enlightening and enhancing my critical thinking, problem solving skills and even expanding the network for my career, just to name a few.

Furthermore, the hands-on experience on development bottlenecks, through field placement (in a development organization), has shed more light on the multi-faceted and complex nature of development issues. From that, I grasped more about the relevance and usefulness of the interdisciplinary approach of this program.  Moreover, the professionalism coupled with a devoted service of the TCD MDP coordination team has been highly contributing in creating an enabling environment for my learning. To sum up, I honestly don`t think I would have got that experience and great opportunity from any other program, if not the Masters in Development Practice I have been pursuing at TCD.

Bryan Lee ( MDP graduate 2015)

Choosing the Dublin MDP program was the best decision of my life.  From the first day, you are thrown into a fast-paced and dynamic learning environment with classmates who have diverse backgrounds and bring a wide variety of life experience to the table.  The classes you take are very engaging and there is never a shortage of passionate debate with professors and classmates.  The small class size also allows you to interact closely with your lecturers and classmates.  I found it is easy to make friends very quickly in this environment.

There are plenty of opportunities to network and to engage in development projects with the local Irish NGO sector and abroad in the Global South. There are also plenty of travel opportunities as mainland Europe is very accessible and students can engage in research projects worldwide over the summer.

Going to school in Dublin has been nothing short of spectacular.  In addition to the prestigious reputation, this program offers a great learning environment.

Safarani Seushi ( MDP graduate 2016)

It took me five years to find a Masters course that was perfect to what I had in mind for my career development. The classroom experience was one of a kind, from the lecture delivery to the weekly challenges that provide a platform for skill building and knowledge sharing. The lecturers are experienced and have worked in different parts of the world, so it’s always interesting when they share their knowledge (and stories) with us! Overall this course is well coordinated and I am appreciative of how it has the perfect balance between theoretical and practical learning content. I highly recommend it for those who have a passion in pursuing a career in international development!

FAQ - Masters in Development Practice

What is the dublin mdp.

1. What is a Master’s in Development Practice degree?

Proposed term faculty changes in handbook draw discussion

By Jeff Budlong February 15, 2024

At their Feb. 13 meeting, faculty senators heard the first reading of proposed changes to the Faculty Handbook that would clarify and streamline processes for term faculty in position reviews, term renewals and advancement. Each proposed change drew significant discussion.

Credit for previous employment

Lecturer or assistant-rank term faculty may advance to the associate rank after five years of employment at ISU. The five years can be reduced through credit for prior faculty service at other colleges and universities or with relevant professional expertise. Currently, the Faculty Handbook allows previous credit to be discussed at the time of hiring and before a first multiyear contract is negotiated. The proposed change, intended to ensure consistency, would only allow the discussion to take place before the first multiyear contract.

Originally, the proposed change was to limit discussion about previous experience to the time of hire, but an amendment passed that changed the sole opportunity to the first offering of a multiyear contract. Senators argued it gave term faculty more security and sped up the clock for advancement or raises.

Administrative opportunities

Another proposed change would allow colleges and departments to determine if their term faculty may hold administrative roles. Currently, the Faculty Handbook doesn't list administative posts as roles term faculty can fill. While there was discussion for and against term faculty holding these positions, senators ultimately asked that "administrative role" first be defined in the Faculty Handbook so they can make an informed decision. 

Performance evaluations

To ease the review numbers for departments with numerous term faculty, another proposed change to the Faculty Handbook would require that assistant professors be reviewed every three years, term faculty at the associate level or above, every six years. Currently, all term faculty are reviewed after their third year and then every three years.  The change would more closely align with the evaluation timeline of five to seven years for tenure-eligible faculty after they receive tenure.

Proposed changes also would clarify that only term research faculty or adjunct faculty with at least 50% research in their position responsibility statement must supply external letters during advancement review. A maximum of three letters can be included. Confusion about this requirement has led some departments to require letters in the advancement reviews for all their term faculty.

Graduate Council added to senate

Senators approved including the Graduate Council in the Faculty Senate's academic affairs council to make it part of the senate. It gives the full senate decision-making authority for all graduate faculty, graduate and professional students ,and postdocs. The Graduate Council is renamed the Graduate Faculty Cabinet to avoid placing a council within a council. New language will be added to the senate bylaws to include the Graduate Faculty Cabinet.

Other business

Senators will vote at the next meeting on a resolution that encourages students to take part in the 2024 general election and encourages faculty to not schedule exams or major assignments on Election Day. A proposed amendment, to remove language in the resolution encouraging faculty to hold classes asynchronously when feasible and excuse student absences or tardiness on Election Day, failed.

The senate approved University Professor Elisabeth Lonergan (animal science) as chair of the committee that will conduct an administrative review of the office of the president. The committee will complete its work over the next year. Other members are:

Dave Cantor, supply chain management

Carol Chapelle, English

Amanda Fales-Williams, veterinary pathology
