School(Business) Permit No. : 465065

Standardized Exam : IELTS, Cambridge Exam, TIE, Trinity GESE

Since we opened our doors in 2004, Dublin Cultural Institute has developed into one of the leading English language centres in Dublin. DCI offers high quality language programmes and a unique location in the very centre of Ireland’s capital city, Dublin.

Students looking to improve their General English, prepare for specific English exams, improve their Business English or conversational skills will find everything at DCI. Our experienced, qualified teachers and all our staff are committed to delivering a personal service to you the student with the highest standards of care.

In 2015, DCI was acquired by High Schools International. Declan Millar, MD and founder of HSI in Ireland and the UK, has a long history in the English language business, having started his career as a teacher of English himself in Germany and Dublin and going on to work as a Director of Studies in a Dublin language school. HSI, since its foundation in 1988, has acquired a reputation as a quality provider of services to the high school industry, with operations in Ireland and the UK, and with partner operations in the US and Canada.

All students on programs which are on the internationalisation register or ILEP are required to attend full-time study for 25 weeks for 15 contact hours per week (375 hours).

On arrival at DCI students will receive a timetable showing tuition time and dates. This timetable will include the holiday period they have selected. The student must then attend classes based on the timetable and it must not be altered.

The new minimum attendance of 85% has come into effect since 1st October 2015. Formal Contact hours are:

15 hours per week, Morning Timetable
09:00-12:15 (break time from 10:30-10:45 or 10:45 – 11:00)

15 hours per week, Afternoon Timetable
12:45 – 16:00 (break time from 2:00 – 2:15 or 2:15 to 2:30

The attendance is monitored by the Director of Studies and office manager. Failure to maintain an 85% attendance will result in the student receiving a written warning. If the student fails to improve their attendance within two weeks after the first warning the Director of Studies will issue second warning with a copy to GNIB/INIS who may choose to withdraw the visa. The next step may include expulsion. You may not make up for missed/late attendance at the end of your programme as your timetable must be followed.
Payment Method : Bank Transfer, Credit card
Student shall deposit a full payment directly to the school’s bank account within 7 days of receiving booking approval from the school.
Cancellations more than 4 weeks before arrival will incur a €100 charge. Cancellations less than 4 weeks and more than 1 week before arrival will incur a €300 cancellation charge. Cancellations less than one week before arrival - no refund. Visa refusal (with evidence of refusal) - refund less €300 administration charge
