Do I have to complete the full duration of the course currently on offer in February, i.e. the full week?

Some SCG.OCG programme participants have to complete all three weeks of their Gaeltacht / Gaeltacht Replacement module, whilst others have already completed some time in the Gaeltacht last year. If you only have a certain number of hours / days to complete you can register with Coláiste na Rinne for the time / elements you require. The daily rate is €80. Please contact sinead@anrinn to book and pay for your required days / time.

Will Coláiste na Rinne be offering additional dates?

Yes. During the first week of February Coláiste na Rinne will make a range of additional dates available which will include some weekend options and evening options too. Please check out website again next week for those dates.

Is the SCG/OCG Gaeltacht Replacement Course a compulsory part of the Irish Language requirement.

Yes, this course is a compulsory part of the Irish Language requirement.

Is this February week long course recognised as a replacement for the Gaeltacht residential part, due to Covid?

Is there an option to pay by Instalments?
