Centres outside of Ireland

A. Full exam

Subject to demand, full exams will be held in Paris in May/June 2023

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.
