What Is Pre-University Liberal Arts?

This one-year course, similar to our other arts programme, aims to prepare
participants for entrance into Arts programmes in Irish universities and
colleges, as well as preparing students to work in a European environment
both in Ireland and abroad. However, the Liberal arts option attributes
more of a focus on The Arts, English Literature and European languages.
Students will have the option of taking a language, Irish or Spanish, along
with European Studies or can focus on a more English Literature based
course, which will lead to a general studies option.
