Be proactive and look for the areas that interest you whether it’s the Environment or Human Rights and find MEP’s or interest groups that specialise in those interests and take the initiative to send them your CV.

Having a European language would help you considerably in this career. Irish should also not be ruled out as an option as this is considered as a second language.

They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Summary... header image

This course combines Irish Studies with Literature and Music. It provides an integrated interdisciplinary programme of learning for students with a particular interest in modern and contemporary Irish culture.

The literature strand of the program explores Ireland's most accomplished writers in Irish and in English from the nineteenth century to the present, with Irish language material being presented in translation. The music strand provides a historical and theoretical approach to Irish music (and dance) practice during the same period, spanning traditional and popular games.
