Tailored language learning

DCU offers a deeply personal learning experience for students, academics and professionals through our English language programmes.

We work closely with academia, professional associations, government ministries and corporations to deliver bespoke business English courses that meet their needs.

Our Semester Study programme gives professionals the opportunity to improve their English through language training and participating in modules from our degree programmes.

Our influence in the Middle East is evident on the ground in Dublin, where we equip international students with the confidence to learn through English via our specialist one-year pathway programmes to our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.
