Graduate and Professional Studies (GPS) is the division at UL responsible for the promotion, admissions, innovation and development of postgraduate and professional programmes.

Driven by academic excellence, educational offerings are broad and ever evolving.   With UL’s firmly established links to industry, our programme content is industry-led and research-driven. Our accredited programmes are professionally orientated and employer-focused, with many aimed at addressing specific skills gaps. 

The Graduate and Professional Studies team, under the interim leadership of Professor Ann Ledwith has responsibility for three key areas, Admissions, Marketing & Recruitment and Professional Education.  

Graduate and Professional Studies is located within the Provost and Deputy President (PDP) Office.  The Associate Vice President GPS reports to the Office of the PDP.  The PDP is the University’s chief academic officer, with responsibility for overseeing the quality and delivery of the academic programmes offered by the university and all aspects of a student’s academic journey from admission to graduation.
