Gnó agus Gaeilge – Bí cruthaitheach agus iomaíoch

Overview

Overview Icon

Má tá grá agat don Ghaeilge agus suim agat sa ghnó, i dteicneolaíocht na faisnéise agus san fhiontraíocht, seo an bhunchéim duitse. 

Níl aon chéim eile in Éirinn ar a múintear cúrsaí chomh sainiúil seo sa ghnó, sa bhainistíocht agus i dteicneolaíocht na faisnéise trí mheán na Gaeilge. 

Tá nasc idir an clár seo agus fostóirí náisiúnta agus idirnáisiúnta a thugann tús áite do chéimithe a bhfuil sárscileanna gnó agus TF acu agus ar ceannairí nuálacha iad. 

Beidh deis agat bliain a chaitheamh ar chlár INTRA agus taithí a fháil sa láthair oibre, nó dul ar aghaidh go dtí an bhliain dheireanach. 

Gheobhaidh tú oideachas leathan acadúil agus praiticiúil atá in oiriúint don saol comhaimseartha gnó. 

Cuirfidh Fiontar & Scoil na Gaeilge timpeallacht foghlama spreagúil chomhaimseartha ar fáil duit agus forbróidh tú an cumas ceannaireachta atá ionat. 

Riachtanais Bhreise
Anuas ar ghnáthriachtanais iontrála na hOllscoile (féach lch XX), caithfidh tú Grád O1 Gnáthleibhéal nó H4 Ardleibhéal a bheith agat sa Ghaeilge.

I chose this course for a couple of reasons. When I finished my leaving cert, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. As a result I ended up limiting myself through my choices on the CAO.

In earnáil an ghnó tá gá le daoine cruthaitheacha spleodracha. Bíonn fostóirí ag lorg daoine a bhfuil ardchumas sa ghnó agus scileanna i dteicneolaíocht na faisnéise acu. Níl ansin ach leath an scéil, áfach. Bíonn géarghá acu freisin le daoine atá in ann féachaint ar rudaí ar bhealach nua, daoine atá in ann cumas bainistíochta agus tréithe ceannaireachta a léiriú. Chun freastal ar na riachtanais seo tá struchtúr ar leith ar an gclár. 

Déantar gnó iomlán an chúrsa trí mheán na Gaeilge. Níl clár acadúil ar bith inchurtha leis seo a chuireann clár oibre ar ardchaighdeán ar fáil i gcúrsaí gnó agus bainistíochta, agus i dteicneolaíocht na faisnéise don ghnó agus é trí mheán na Gaeilge. 

Déantar staidéar ar an nGaeilge ar bhealach nuálach praiticiúil. Tacaíonn fostóirí go tréan leis an gcur chuige seo agus tá nasc cruthaithe ag an gclár le comhlachtaí agus le heagrais mhóra náisiúnta agus idirnáisiúnta. Cinntíonn an nasc seo go mbeidh buntáiste ar leith agat agus tú ag tosú ar shaol na hoibre.

At DCU, our students can expect a unique campus experience. We are known for our excellent teaching and learning facilities, our active clubs and societies, and our great social and sporting facilities. All this makes DCU an exciting place to be. 

DCU has three academic campuses; Glasnevin, St. Patrick’s and All Hallows (both in Drumcondra), all close to Dublin City centre. 

They can be reached by public transport, Dublin Bus and Bus Éireann, with our Drumcondra campuses a ten minute walk from Drumcondra Train Station. Glasnevin is a 20 minute walk from St Patrick’s and All Hallows. They are also linked by Dublin Bus.

Each campus has a library (O’Reilly, Cregan and Woodlock Hall), study spaces, restaurants, and on-campus residencies. There are sports facilities on Glasnevin and St. Patrick’s, and there is a dedicated sports campus, St Claire’s, located near Glasnevin on the Ballymun Road.

DCU’s 19,000 students have access to exceptional teaching and learning facilities across our three academic campuses. 

These include modern learning theatres, research centres, a new media and TV studio, radio/podcast studios, computer suites and advanced labs in the areas of Languages, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry and Biotechnology, as well as a Sports Performance centre and a training hospital ward. In 2021, we opened our first virtual reality ‘Leadership Lab’, which is located in our Business School.

We continue to improve and update our facilities. For example, construction of a new world-class STEM facility is underway on the Glasnevin campus. With capacity for an extra 3,000 STEM students, this facility will advance DCU’s international reputation for excellence in science and health, computing and engineering disciplines.

Studying in DCU isn’t just about course work. The university is rich in student life and activities.

There are more than 140 clubs and societies for students in DCU, with ‘Clubs & Socs’ days taking place on both the Glasnevin and Drumcondra campuses at the start of the academic year. They span everything from rugby to rock climbing, anime to jazz.

For many students, sport is an important part of the DCU experience. DCU’s Sports Complex boasts a 25 metre swimming pool, fitness centre gym, all-weather pitches and squash courts, as well as soccer, GAA and rugby pitches. DCU Dóchas Éireann, the university’s GAA club, is the largest third level Gaelic Games club in the country. Meanwhile, DCU Athletics has been Ireland’s highest achieving university club for many years. And DCU has dozens of other clubs to get involved in, from Archery to Weightlifting. 

The Glasnevin campus is home to our purpose built, state-of-the-art student centre, The U, which serves the needs of a rapidly growing student body. Here, you will find the Student Leadership and Lifeskills Centre, performing arts and cultural spaces for students and the wider community, and the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Hub. Also located on our Glasnevin campus is The Helix, our renowned performing arts centre.

On our St Patrick’s campus, we have the Java Student Hub, a vibrant, warm and welcoming space where students can meet for coffee, play music, use the projector to watch events, or just relax. The walls of the Java Hub were designed based on the cultural history of St Patrick’s Campus, including the special references to the notable sporting history and history of the arts.

We have a number of academic, professional and social supports for students.

Student Advice Centre - Offers a wide range of supports and services to students and advice 

The Writing Centre - drop-in writing workshops for students through the academic year 

Maths Learning Centre - provides maths support for students of all ability levels with maths modules 

Student Learning - facilitate the transition from passive to active learning for students at DCU, by teaching study skills, nurturing critical thinking and building student confidence. 

Careers work with students to help them on their professional journey into graduate employment.

Our student support team offers a comprehensive support programme, helping students make that all important transition into university life and focusing on building confidence and skills which are key to success at third level.
