Don't just go into teaching because you are looking for long holidays. To teach everyday you need to like children, be very patient and understanding. However I feel it is one of the most rewarding jobs out there.

Linguistic?
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, or 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.

Medicine - RC001
 

RCSI offers a five and six year course for school leavers. Some students may be exempt from the foundation year, based on their academic subjects and / or grades they have achieved prior to admission. If, so they will undertake the five year programme.

Teaching is largely systems based with the early introduction of clinical case studies and data intrepration. Early patient contact facilitates integration of the basic sciences and is followed by a clinical programme. 


 

Alternative to CAO - This course is open to graduates of any discipline who obtain the necessary GAMSAT results. The medical course has a strong emphasis on small group teaching within the Curriculum. Small group teaching involves seminars with tutors in groups of ten and bedside teaching with students in groups of six. Simulation scenarios occur in groups of one tutor per three students in the senior clinical years. The programme provides continuous appraisal, mentoring and case presentations on an individual basis along with frequent reviews of your clinical progress with senior clinicians in the clinical years.
