The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

Earning an advanced degree, like a Master of Arts, may advance a stalled career or help someone move in a new professional direction. These programs vary in length, but most take two to three years to complete with part-time or full-time course schedules.

Ireland lately implemented a law, which mandates all students attending university education to apply for government loans to allow them achieve their higher academic dreams. First official language is Irish, also known as Irish Gaelic, but English (the second official language) is more widely used. The national capital is Dublin. Ireland is famous for celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day (17 March) all over the world.

It is unique in the way it applies race-critical, cultural and postcolonial theories to racialization, population movement, conflict and peace-making. It is designed for people who work or wish to work in any of these fields, and/or who are thinking of PhD research. There is a focus on Ireland, Europe (including the Balkans), the US and the Middle East.

The course has three components:

Three core modules: race-critical theory, research methods, and colonialism, conflict and liberal intervention. Optional modules covering topics such as ethnic cleansing and forced migration; ethnicity and social policy; human rights and international issues; gender, race and conflict; migration and the European labour market; migration and education; representation and resistance; social movements and international solidarity.

The Post Graduate Diploma / MA Degree in Development Studies by flexible and distance learning (FDL) offers learners the opportunity to combine work and study anywhere in the world, while still connecting online with a diverse and vibrant learning community. Learners can undertake the MA completely online or they can combine the best of distance and e-learning with classroom participation – it is tailored to the needs of learners who like to study in their own time and at their own pace, but still want to have the option of drawing on the benefits of face to face, participatory and experience-based interaction with other participants and tutors.

It is a less costly option than a face to face programme, especially for learners living outside of Dublin or Ireland, as travel and living expenses are minimised, and because you can continue to work where you are based. Despite geographical distance, by participating in online discussions and other networked activities, learners are still part of a community of learners at Kimmage.... [-]
