Activities for Schools
We are committed to supporting teachers and career advisers who provide information and advice to their students about studying one of our subjects. As part of this commitment, we offer a range of activities, taster sessions and resources designed to give your students a realistic insight into what it's like to study here.
We can work with you to link content to your curriculum or give you a taste of what it is like to study our subjects at University level.
We are always delighted to hear from schools and colleges who are interested in working with our Department of Irish Studies. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we unfortunately cannot visit schools or offer on-campus sessions at this moment in time. However please check out the online resources that we have created for classes interested in Irish Studies. We hope that you find these resources useful tasters to aspects of Irish Studies and we look forward to providing face to face sessions again soon.
Liverpool city has always had strong links with Ireland (north and south) and we have long been the hub of Irish migration.
Due to our location, we have developed excellent links with the Liverpool Irish community and our degree programmes reflect this by covering a wide and unique range of topics, from Irish politics and history to its literature, people and culture.
Students who choose to study with us would have the opportunity to attend lectures, seminars and take a field trip to Ireland. Students would also have the opportunity to attend an extensive range of prestigious events held at our Institute of Irish Studies; high profile speakers have included Irish President Michael D. Higgins, US Senator George Mitchell, and writers Roddy Doyle and Seamus Heaney. The Institute also offers students a number of exciting, high-profile work placement opportunities.
