Course Description

German (Conversion Course)

The Higher Diploma in Arts is intended for those who already have a degree and who wish to study the subject intensively over one academic year full-time or two academic years part-time (by day).

The Higher Diploma in Arts is a conversion programme and applicants would not normally have studied the relevant Higher Diploma in Arts subject to honours degree level previously.

It is aimed at graduates who may wish to be considered for a Masters programme in the subject area subsequently (but do not have an honours degree in the relevant area) or who may wish to add the Higher Diploma in Arts subject to their qualifications attainments.

Registration with the Teaching Council: For applicants who are taking the Higher Diploma with a view to Teaching Council subject registration, the Higher Diploma in Arts German is recognised by the Teaching Council for the purposes of a teaching subject at post primary level.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please note that the Higher Diploma in Arts programme is NOT the teacher training programme. Graduates must complete the Professional Master of Education to qualify as a secondary school teacher. Please see for further details.
