More Detailed Information:
At the Irish College of English, we cater for specific High School Group Study Stays and their needs in developing short tailored group English programmes to suit different types of English learners and different budgets. As a smaller school, with very well qualified staff, we have the expertise and adaptability to design a variety of programmes. We encourage adult, junior and High School Group Study Stays to come to Ireland during the low season Sept – Mid June and can offer very competitive rates. We already have a number of state schools, private schools, third level colleges and language Institutes abroad that send us groups on a continuous basis and our student/leader feedback is excellent – see our Letters of recommendation.
