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, 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?

For most courses class size is generally between 20 and 30 students.

There are no fees for tuition, however there are course charges. In line with provision in the third level sector these charges exist to cover the costs of the following items: books, some equipment, uniforms/clothing, student services, student union, examination fees and registration charges by professional bodies. Course charges can be found at the end of individual course pages on the website.

There are no points required for entry to any of our courses.  In general applicants are required to have their Leaving Certificate and to be successful in an interview.  For some courses it may be necessary to present a portfolio of work. For specific course requirements see individual course pages.

The number of mature students attending Further Education courses in Coláiste Dhúlaigh is increasing each year and at present constitutes a significant proportion of our total numbers. Mature students are very welcome and Learner Supports will pay particular attention to their learning needs.

In many cases advanced entry is possible. Many of our courses have long-established links with colleges in Ireland and the UK, including DCU, DIT, IT Tallaght, Dundalk IT, IADT, and final year entry into honours degree programmes at the University of Ulster, University of Wolverhampton and others.
