Realist

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

Céard faoi staidéar a dhéanamh ar an nGaeilge in OÉ Gaillimh, áit a bhfuil seasamh ar leith agus traidisiún fada léinn ag an nGaeilge? Is cinnte go bhfuil neart Gaeilge agat cheana féin ó do laethanta scoile, ón mbaile más de bhunadh na Gaeltachta thú nó má tógadh thú i dteaghlach a labhraíonn Gaeilge nó má d’fhreastail tú ar scoil a fheidhmíonn trí mheán na Gaeilge. Nó b’fhéidir gur chaith tú tréimhsí sa Ghaeltacht. Má chinneann tú BA sa Ghaeilge a dhéanamh foghlaimeoidh tú faoi oidhreacht liteartha, chultúrtha agus teanga na Gaeilge ó thús aimsire go dtí an lá atá inniu ann. Chomh maith leis sin, gheobhaidh tú deis líofacht a bhaint amach sa Ghaeilge, idir labhairt agus scríobh.

Notes:
Students registering for Modern Languages or Irish 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/region.
