> world-wide, as participants and as leaders.
> Programme Structure
> Candidates will complete core, training and career development modules,
> including main modules shared across the consortium and others

> 1) to introduce students to the history and theoretical issues in digital

> research; 3) to provide an enabling framework for students to develop
> generic and transferable skills to carry out their final research
> projects/dissertations.
> Year 1 of the four-year programme includes core and optional graduate
> education modules delivered in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Maynooth. These
> modules provide a grounding in essential research skills and transferable
> skills together with access to specialist topics. In years 2 and 3 work on
> PhD research projects is supplemented with access to elective modules. Year
> 3 features practical placements in industry, academic research environments
> or cultural institutions.
