Centres outside of Ireland

A. Full exam

Subject to demand, full exams will be held in Paris.

If you are a teacher of Irish abroad, or if you work with a language organisation abroad, and would like to discuss the possibility of holding the full exam in your area, please contact teanga@mu.ie as soon as possible to discuss this with us. 

B. Oral exam only

If you are located in Paris and wish to take the oral exam only, you can choose that option on the application form. 

If you are living anywhere else abroad and wish to take the oral exam on its own, choose the Other centre abroad option on your application form and the TEG office will make the relevant arrangements. Oral exams will be held online for candidates who live abroad.  A minimum number of candidates will be required in order for us to offer online oral exams.
