Blas can be accredited as part of a university undergraduate degree*
Blas has an accreditation worth 3 undergraduate credits, which is equivalent to 6 ECTS credits. To gain this, interested students undertake the tuition given and attend lectures and extra curricula events in excess of 50 contact hours.
Interested students will go through the process of being registered with the University of Limerick before arrival. During Blas, accreditation students will undertake the tuition given and attend lectures and extra curricula events in excess of 50 contact hours. They will also receive access to the University of Limerick’s online resource system, Brightspace, where they can access academic material and lecture slides on the subject of Irish traditional music, song and dance. Students must also complete a written assignment due for submission after the Blas programme is complete (date TBC in August 2024). Please note, accreditation is only available for students undertaking the full two week study period.
