Resources for Study in the UK and Ireland

Yale students and alumni thinking about pursuing post-graduate study in the United Kingdom or Ireland are encouraged to make an appointment to talk with Kate Dailinger in Fellowship Programs. She studied in England herself and can interpret academic websites, put you in touch with useful contacts, and help with fellowships, applications, interviews, and more.

Where to begin

If you are interested in graduate school, whether in the UK and Ireland or closer to home, faculty members are your best source of advice. Talk to these experts in your field about who is doing interesting research, where the strongest degree programs are, and which of them might best suit your background, interests, and longer-term aims. You'll be able to have more fruitful conversations if you go in having done some homework first...

To help everyone make the most of limited advising hours, we ask you to begin by attending one of the info sessions on postgraduate study in the UK and Ireland, offered each spring. If you cannot be there in person to hear the essentials, plus Q&A and advice from past winners of these fellowships, you can still get an online version of the basics—and meet the info session requirement for one-on-one advising—here; then just follow the rest of the usual steps to book an appointment, being sure to fill out the pre-advising questionnaire as thoroughly as possible.  Thank you!
