A common misconception about a career in tax is that it is just about numbers, however, tax law has a strong basis in legislation and case law. Therefore, it is really suitable for graduates from a legal background, or for qualified solicitors and barristers.

Postgraduate Funding


Finding funding is often the biggest headache for prospective postgraduates. However, grants, scholarships, bursaries and loans are all available, and it's likely that you'll need a combination of these to pay your way.

For a full an updated list of postgraduate funding please visit www.postgradireland.com

North/South Postgraduate Scholarship

These bursaries are open to students currently registered at an Irish or Northern Irish university or Dublin Institute of Technology (or who have graduated within the past two years) proposing to take up a place on a course which would require them to relocate to the other jurisdiction on the island of Ireland. They are also open to currently registered students at an Irish or Northern Irish university or Dublin Institute of Technology (or who have graduated within the past two years) wishing to follow a cross-border course involving some study in the other jurisdiction. There are eight of these scholarships in total.

The holder may not simultaneously register for another course.

The Scholarships are tenable for up to four years. They are awarded in the first instance for a period of one year, but may, subject to the availability of funding, be renewed on an annual basis, provided the holder’s progress in his/her studies is satisfactory and renewal is recommended in writing by the Head of Department.

  Hint: STEPS

I am currently studying a part-time Masters in Image Processing in Dublin City University. This is to satisfy some extra training in an area I work in daily. Image processing is the study of using cameras to replicate human vision. We use them to inspect parts for defects.

Training is very much a big part of our company and it is encouraged that some form of training is completed annually. All relevant training is funded by the organisation. This is common in the engineering world. I am spending a week in Japan soon for further training in Image Processing with a Japanese Engineer
