Irish Language Schools' Liaison Scheme

Introduction

The aim of this scheme is to show the universities support of Irish-medium post primary schools.  A panel visits the senior classes in a number of different schools to discuss UCC itself, academic life, college social life, along with the opportunities, schemes and courses that are available for Irish speakers in UCC.  The scheme is also used to encourage students to apply for a course in UCC. 

Usually there are two students and one staff member on the panel.  As the panel members come from various different departments and units within UCC, a wide diversity of information is shared with the pupils.

A meeting is organized in March every year to discuss the terms of reference and the aims of the scheme.  Feedback is also given on the school visits and recomendations are made as on how the scheme can be improved upon.
