I've been checking out University College Cork and I'm really loving the idea of going there. Does anyone know how this ranks among the others in Ireland? And also some of the best schools in the country?

Right now I'm checking out University of Limerick for myself. They have a really great Traditional Irish Music program and offer degrees in both Ethnomusicology and Traditional Irish Music performance.

I'm not sure if that makes it one of the best...but...it certainly makes it pretty damn cool in my opinion.

Cheers

Here's a link regarding the Undergraduate Traditional music and dance program:
http://www.ul.ie/admissions/newprospectus/...ies/LM030.shtml

And here's one that focuses more on Graduate programs, but tells a lot about the IWMC Irish World Music Center:
http://www.graduatestudies.ul.ie/prospectu.../col_iwmc.shtml

I'm lazy and didn't make the addresses hyperlinks so you'll have to copy and paste.

How does the school system in Ireland work? I know that the French system is really hard and quite frankly bad (says my french teach haha!). I'm just curious.

Twas St . Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun of his labour with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the
Mireland, and they call it the dear little shamrock of Ireland.

Just because it is different doesn't mean that it is better or worse.
However....speaking from a musical perspective...the French system kicks ours in the @$$.

I'm really not sure if Ireland has a systemized musical curricula. I'm sure you'd be able to find out quite easily by either an internet search or by contacting one of the people at U of L.

If I remember correctly....a few years ago there was talk of creating a set of national music standards (much like the set we have in the United States!) except with an actual inclusion of folk and traditional genres (which ours doesn't have).

i was at UL last semester and i loved it. The school system in my opinion is harded (a grade based on 1 paper and 1 final exam both of which are essays is not my cup of tea) the school here in the states. the city of limerick is also great and dont let people tell you different. smile.gif take care all.

see ya,
lauren

UL sounds like a great program. The music programs sound fascinating. I was in Limrick a while back. It is a beautiful village. Moving there from the US would give a new meaning to the concept "slowing down". laugh.gif
