Leonardo Interviews for 2011 programme


A huge number of students have applied for placement on the 2011 Leonardo Programme.  They will be interviewed over the next week by Orla O’Riordan, Jane Fitzpatrick and Pauline Matthews.  It is hoped that students will be informed of their interview outcome before the mid-term break.  Each group of students will then have to undergo 8 weeks of Language Training before the programme ommences.
