Returning-studentsReturning applicants are not required to complete the online exercises
They can directly download an application form – via this link
New applicants are asked to undertake a number of interactive exercises before they may access an application form. The minimum number of exercises they will need to undertake will depend on their current school year.
This is our fifth year in using this enrolment format. It has proven to be very successful and offers a good introduction to further online materials that are available to students prior to the course and also after the course finishes.
There isn’t any pass/fail aspect to these tasks and their outcome will not have any bearing on class groupings during the cúrsa Gaeilge.

Applicants are welcome to practice as long and as often as is required.
Please note, once you have logged of the programme you will be required to begin over on restarting.
