Taking part in social activities at CEA is a vert important part of the study abraod experience and we try to make sure that we have something for everybody.
Learning English at CEA is greatly enhanced when students are involved in social and activity events.

We strongly encourage students to take part in the school’s weekly organised events along with promoting activities, festivals and interesting places to visit in Cork and surrounding areas.
