Ulster University is delighted to announce its second annual Irish Studies Summer School to be held in June/August 2015. This 6 week, interdisciplinary academic program and cultural experience will address all aspects of Irish studies from drama, film, literature (in both languages), history, music, peace and conflict studies and politics and will also include a one-week, Irish-language immersion in the Donegal Gaeltacht.
Its setting (Counties Tyrone, Donegal and Derry) is in some of the most beautiful and culturally rich regions of Western Europe, adjacent to the Causeway Coast and the Donegal and Sperrin Mountains. Regular flights to London will enable students to visit most of Europe’s great capital cities. In week 2, the school offers participants a unique Irish Language immersion in Gaoth Dobhair, a vibrant, Irish-speaking community, set in some of the finest scenery and amenities in Europe.
