March 2018 : National University of Ireland MA

Institution : The National University of Ireland (NUI)

Award : Master of Arts (MA)

Description : Dark green, lined white, bound on all edges with mid-blue 2" inside and ¼" outside.

Shape : Dublin [f2]

The NUI hoods are relatively simple: all of dark green, the bachelors [s3] lined faculty colour, the masters [f2] lined white, bordered 2" faculty colour, the PhD [f2] lined maroon, bordered 2" faculty colour, and higher doctors [f2] lined faculty colour, but for some reason the Arts colour is white. So the MA has to have a second faculty colour, mid-blue. The masters' border is 2" inside and ¼" outside on all edges.
