In today's fast-paced and rapidly-changing world, effective communication is more important than ever, and English as a means of international communication is key. International Education has become a permanent and ever-growing feature of modern society and today traditional English-language programmes form only part of a complex range of study-abroad programmes required by groups and individuals as a way of achieving personal, educational or professional goals. Mobility involving cultural exchanges among countries worldwide has become an integral part of professional development in a way that couldn't have been imagined a few years ago.
Personal attention to the individual needs and cultural backgrounds of all our students is at the centre of the Emerald Cultural Institute experience. Every aspect of the study-abroad programme is important to us, and all our staff are committed to delivering the highest quality service in a friendly, personal and professional environment. We have been providing quality English language and professional development programmes since 1986 to groups and individuals of all ages and from more.
We offer a sophisticated range of English language courses and programmes specially designed to cater for all the learning needs of our adult clients. Students can choose whichever one of our beautiful campuses best suits their unique needs. Our centres are equipped with excellent facilities to enhance the learning experience of every student. Students of all levels benefit from interesting and challenging lessons by highly qualified and experienced teachers.
Monitoring progress, continuous evaluation and feedback from clients are an integral part of maintaining quality and ensuring that students continuously learn and improve.
Students receive a warm and friendly welcome from the moment they arrive. We believe that social and personal development is an essential part of studying a language abroad.
We want all our students to have an experience of the culture and lifestyle of Ireland and therefore provide the opportunity of participating in a lively and varied social and cultural programme.
We offer our English courses in two locations:
- Miltown Park
Milltown Park is a beautiful and supportive learning environment for our international students. It was formerly the home of Trinity College’s Irish School of Ecumenics and we are proud to continue the tradition of education on this impressive campus.
Located in its own peaceful and spacious landscaped grounds, Milltown Park is situated in the vibrant and popular neighbourhood of Ranelagh with many restaurants, cafes, boutique shops and traditional pubs. The campus is well connected by bus and tram to the city centre and student accommodation.
The school is well served by public transport with several bus routes stopping near the school gates and the nearest tram (Luas) stop is an 8-minute walk from the school.
- Palmerston Park
Our Palmerston Park School is located in a prime residential neighbourhood within easy reach of Dublin city centre yet close to both our host families and student accommodation. Set in its own gardens, and overlooking the beautiful Palmerston Park, it offers students the chance to study English in a peaceful and stress-free environment.
The original school building is a gracious Victorian mansion and we have enriched the campus by adding a specially designed modern building with additional classrooms and a large serviced canteen.
The school is well served by public transport with several bus routes stopping near the school gates and the nearest tram (Luas stop) a 5-minute walk away from the school, bringing directly to the city centre.
