Curriculum Vitae (CV) is your personal brochure. It features all the characteristics that make you the optimal choice for any University. The Curriculum Vitae will be listed as an admission requirement for all of the Irish universities. A Curriculum Vitae is different from a Resume. A Resume is more professionally aimed, whereas a Curriculum Vitae for Postgraduate Studies is more academic-focused. In this section, we will be making your Curriculum Vitae from scratch. Even if you already have a CV prepared, we recommend you to go through this guide and tailor it to the necessities of your Universities.

Before You Start
For example, if you’re applying for the Mechanical Engineering Master’s programme at Trinity College Dublin, you might want to mention that internship at Mercedes in your CV.
A golden rule of a CV for Master’s application is to focus on your academic accomplishments over the professional ones. Professional involvements and achievements are also essential, but make sure to shine a light on academic ones.
