There will be changes to the Irish oral entry requirement for students applying for post graduate programmes in primary teaching in DCU, Maynooth University, Marino Institute of Education and Mary Immaculate College.
At present, applicants who have already satisfied the Minimum Entry Requirements in Irish, English and Maths, have to do three separate Irish oral examinations. Each of these oral examinations take place on the same day as an interview at the institution concerned.
Starting from 2019, there will only be one Irish oral examination, which will take place before they apply to their preferred college. They will then apply to their college of choice and be called to interview. No further oral exam will take place.
