On public health grounds, educational institutions in Ireland remain closed as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19. On this basis, DCU English Language School is not in a position to operate classes on our campuses presently and we will remain closed for on-campus activities until further notice. See further updates on this page.
The Government of Ireland has stated that educational institutions may reopen from autumn 2020, on a phased basis. It is our intention to recommence the operation of on-campus classes from autumn 2020 onwards. We will announce further details regarding our reopening plans shortly.
While Dublin City University will be closed to students for the covid-19 closure period, our staff will be available to assist students via email and telephone (contact details located at the bottom of this statement).
We understand that this is a difficult time for students, their parents and our partners. DCU Language Services will make best efforts to minimise inconvenience to students and to provide the best possible support during this period of interruption. The safety and welfare of our students is our utmost priority at all times.
Frequently Asked Questions – For Students
To assist stakeholders, we have developed a Frequently Asked Questions section, which will answer many of the questions that students, partners and Host Families may have at this time.
