Úsáidfear an t-eolas a bhaileofar sa suribhé seo le plean a chur i bhfeidhm chun an Dioplóma sa Ghaeilge a chur ar fáil i gCathair Ard Mhacha.

Aonach Mhacha would love to hear your thoughts and feedback on the Irish language and to ascertain the demand for a Part-Time Diploma in Irish in Armagh delivered by the University of Ulster. We hope to use the information collected from this survey to implement a plan to facilitate the provision of the Irish Language Diploma in Armagh City.

Is deis iontach é an Dioplóma le buneolas a fháil ar gnéithe an teanga agus le forbairt a dhéanamh ar do chuid scileanna cumarsáide, gramadaí, léitheoireachta agus scríbhneoireachta na Gaeilge. Maireann an cúrsa dhá bhliain san iomlán agus is bealach é le haghaidh iontrála ar chéim BA sa Ghaeilge, afách, is féidir an cúrsa a fheiceáil mar aonad saorsheasaimh fosta.

The Part Time Diploma in Irish is a brilliant opportunity to achieve a solid grounding on the different aspects of the Irish language while developing key areas such as conversation, grammar, reading and writing. The Diploma is delivered on one evening during the week. This particular part-time course is 2 years long and as well as serving as a possible pathway for entry to a BA degree in Irish, the course can be seen as a free-standing unit in its own right.
