Some may think that you can go untrained into fishing. The best advice I would give people considering fishing as a profession is to get training. Fishing is an all encompassing career - when you need to go fishing, the rest of your life goes on hold unfortunately. It is very unpredictabe because you could be fishing non stop for three weeks and tied up for two.

Summary... header image

German is the native language of  about 100 million people. 38% of Europeans speak German (in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and elsewhere).  German is also a very inportant language for trade both in Europe and further afield.

This course emphasises competent use of language, grammatical accuracy and systematic vocabulary building along with an improvement of German cultural awareness.

As part of an Arts degree, this subject is one of three subjects you choose in first year. In second and third year you continue with two of the subjects taken in First Arts. Third Year is spent on an Erasmus study year abroad in a partner university.

Notes:
Restricted Entry Subjects: students should note that they may choose only ONE from the following traditional Arts subjects: Beginners' German, Léann an Aistriúcháin, Legal Studies, Information Technology, Mathematics and Psychology.

Each of the above subjects has restrictions on entry to Second Arts based upon performance in First Arts. Therefore, successful completion of the subject in First Arts may not guarantee progression to Second Arts in that subject. For this reason, the College does not permit any student to register for more than ONE restricted entry subject.

Only students obtaining at least 50% in Beginners' German will be admitted to Second Arts German.

Italian, German, Spanish and Welsh may be taken at First Arts without previous knowledge of those languages. N.B. Students should note that the subject Welsh is only available as a First Arts subject.

Students registering for Modern Languages or Gaeilge should note that they will be required to pass (40% or higher) the language component of the subject in order to progress to Second Arts in that subject.

Students should also note that choosing to study a modern language to degree level involves spending a period, normally a year, abroad in a country or region where the language they are studying is widely spoken. Therefore, after successfully completing the Second Arts examination and in advance of registering for Final Year studies of the BA programme, students will be required to spend a period abroad to prepare them for the demands of the Final Year of their degree studies in a language.

Students registered for two languages are required to spend a minimum of twelve weeks in each of the countries/regions where the relevant languages are spoken. This will usually consist of an academic year abroad arranged by the university in one language and a summer placement arranged by the student in the other relevant country/regio
