PRE-UNIVERSITY LIBERAL ARTS
GENERAL STUDIES 5M3114 OR LANGUAGE AND EUROPEAN STUDIES 5M2073
WHAT IS PRE-UNIVERSITY ARTS?
This one-year course, similar to our other arts programme, aims to prepare participants for entrance into Arts programmes in Irish universities and colleges, as well as preparing students to work in a European environment both in Ireland and abroad. However, the Liberal Arts option attributes more of a focus on The Arts, English Literature and European languages. Students will have the option of taking a language, Irish or Spanish, along with European Studies or can focus on a more English Literature based course, which will lead to a general studies option.
The following modules will be offered in 2021, subject to availability and demand:
• Research and Study Skills
• Work Experience
• English Literature
• Literary, Visual and Performing Arts
• Word Processing
• Political Studies
• European Studies
• Language option
All applicants will be interviewed regardless of previous qualifications
