All language schools are included in the Government Directive for school closures in a measure to contain the spread of COVID-19.

The initial closure period has been extended until further notice.

All schools in Ireland will remain closed until the re-opening date is confirmed by government.

Reopening of Education Institutes

  • The Irish Government have included a reopening of some education institutes in Phase 5 (August 2020) of the published COVID 19 measures road map.
  • This may be in respect to Universities and primary & secondary schools as these education institutes usually reopen in September ever year after a summer closure period.
  • We are waiting for further clarification about English language schools in particular.
  • We will issue a further information notice to all students and agents once we receive more information from the Department of Education and member language school associations.

This is a Government directive and taken on the grounds of public health and safety.

Visa requiring/ILEP students:  This will not affect your attendance and you will not be required to have a medical certificate.
