First Day Orientation
You will have your Induction Day before you start your course. This day introduces you to SEDA, rules and visa tips, followed by a fantastic and useful free walking tour around Dublin City Centre.
This takes place on the Friday before the start of new classes, at 1PM. During induction:

5/ We’ll email you a copy of the student handbook.
6/ You’ll learn about our Health & Safety Policy.
7/ We’ll tell you the rules and policies we have for attendance (the Irish government has rules about this, too.)
8/ You’ll meet the student liaison officer and sometwo in the school who speaks your first language. We have people at SEDA who speak Spanish, Russian, French, Portuguese, Bengali, Italian and Irish.
9/ You will do a speaking placement test.
10/ You will be notified by email of your level, class time, teacher and the name of your classroom. Please ensure we have your correct email address.
