What are your interests?



Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Summary... header image

In this language-intensive programme, students will have the opportunity to engage in three years of dedicated study of the Old Irish language and its literature, as well as making first steps into British-Celtic languages such as Middle Welsh or Modern Breton.

For students who want to explore the entire history of the Irish language from its earliest beginnings until today, this programme combines itself ideally with Modern Irish. Alternatively, together with Latin or Greek, students of this programme can gain fascinating insights into linguistics and language structure.
