Come join in our International Summer School on the beautiful university campus in the heart of Cork city, Ireland

Our English for Work and Life course is available at different levels, from A2 to C2. The course is designed to help you to improve in all areas of English language ability, but with a particular focus on the development of oral skills communication. 

Develop your English for use in a range of real-life situations. You will work in small friendly groups, and our highly skilled teachers will help you develop your English quickly while also having fun.

This programme sometimes takes you out of the classroom and onto our wonderful campus to get you actively learning.

This programme also Includes a free communicative class based on topics related to Irish life and culture.

We offer two different options of class times. You can choose either 20 or 16 hours per week. The 20-hour option is from 9 - 1 Monday to Friday, while the 16-hour option is from 9 - 1 Monday to Thursday. 

Classes are scheduled to allow a break in between to allow you get refreshments. Our University has many cafes, bars and restaurants for lunch. 

We understand that travelling to Ireland is an exciting adventure and while you are here with us as well as providing dynamic and learning-rich English language lessons, we also provide you with an active social programme with an excursion on Wednesday afternoon and an evening activity on Thursday. 

If you choose to stay with a host family while in Cork, we can arrange this for you. 

We are really looking forward to welcoming you here to our wonderful campus in the heart of Cork city, Ireland. 

On completion of the course all participants are provided with a certificate of attendance.

We look forward to welcoming you.
