Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Nan Hu from An Garda Síochána to give some advice for people considering this job:
|I would advise those considering the job to be patient and to be good at what you are doing and when the opportunity comes to join An Garda Siochana just take it!.
If you are part of a minority group in Ireland and considering joining An Garda Síochána then my advice to you is to go for it because as a foreign national working in the organisation I promise there is no discrimination in An Garda Síochána.

As a student of German, you will have a twin focus on language and culture. Through language classes and with supporting material such as film, television and outings to cultural events, you will aim to become a fluent speaker and writer of German. If you’re a beginner, you can take intensive language classes.
All students of German have the opportunity to spend the third year of their undergraduate studies living in a German-speaking country and to graduate with a BA International.
