Linguistic?

Linguistic

The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, or story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

Why us?

Student activities at DFEi are as diverse as our student body itself. Our student canteen – The Hive – is regularly home to student gigs and other events such as table quizzes and cultural celebrations.

We are centrally located on Cumberland Street, Dun Laoighre, five minutes’ walk from Monkstown/Salthill DART Station and on the 7/7A/46A/75 bus routes. Paid car parking in the vicinity of the college is plentiful.

All of our specialist rooms have been upgraded to the highest standard in the last three years. From the sound recording studio to the nursing suite, students coming to DFEi will be learning with the most up to date technology and equipment. See more here

Class sizes in DFEi are small and this affords each students the opportunity of reaching their maximum potential through teacher interaction. DFEi’s teaching staff adopt a wide variety of teaching methods and are acutely aware that not all students learn in the same way and come from a variety of different backgrounds. Integral to teaching in DFEi is the use of Moodle, an eLearning Platform, which provides students with an online learning resource.

Graduates of DFEi courses are very successful in progressing to Further/Higher Education or gaining employment. Each course page contains details of the progression links and employment opportunities available.
