Approval of English Language School

The English Language School is a new initiative by the Centre for Lifelong learning to bring International students to the Northwest of Ireland. The school provides English Language courses for adult students throughout the academic year.


The Centre for Lifelong Learning English Language School provides a range of English courses throughout the year. We offer a one year full time Diploma in Foundation Studies (Pre-Third Level) (Level 7) aimed at International students preparing to study a third level course in Irish universities and colleges. This programme has Academic English as a core module and students also choose the pathway modules they wish to take: Health Sciences; Arts & Humanities; Engineering & IT. On successful completion students will be eligible to progress to undergraduate programmes at a range of Colleges/Universities in Ireland.

Depending on the English level of participants we offer Academic English courses for Undergraduate and Post Graduate study at 10, 20 and 30 week duration. The aim of the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses is to ensure that students attain the required level of academic English to pursue their academic courses and/or professional career.
We also provide an Intensive booster course in International English exam preparation for students preparing to take the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) exam.

We are dedicated to providing a unique learning experience in a safe, relaxed and friendly environment. We believe learning a language should be an enjoyable experience. At our English School we provide some of the best teachers in Ireland. They are on hand to provide all the help and assistance students need, to achieve their goal in learning the English language.

Through a variety of organised activities and excursions students have the opportunity to use their new language skills in real settings and develop their awareness of Irish culture. Our world class facilities are spacious, modern and bright overlooking the lake and landscaped gardens.

Over the next year we anticipate that we will attract students from within Europe and further afield.  Over the coming months we will be attending educational fairs and engaging educational agents to promote our courses.  The college has been highlighted as an ideal location for International students and we will be delighted to welcome future students at our campus.
