Pathway Programme (English + Degree)


Independent College Dublin is pleased to offer a variety of English Language Courses for students in our city-centre English Language School in Dublin. We offer opportunities to prospective students looking to study at degree level who do not meet the language requirements. Our wide range of General English Language courses cater for students of all levels. Quality English Language teaching combined with small classes guarantees results.

The standard general English course covers all aspects of the language: grammar, usage, reading, writing, listening and speaking.

The Business English course consists of specific business related classes. The course is open to students with at least an upper intermediate level of English.

The business section of the course includes the following business modules:

  • Participating in meetings & discussions
  • Negotiating successfully
  • Using the telephone effectively
  • Giving clear and concise presentations
  • Entertaining clients
  • Learning strategies for the future

Great importance is placed on oral communication and materials are both relevant and stimulating. We have state of the art facilities and fully-CELTA trained staff with a strong Business Teaching background who can identify and address our students’ specific needs.

This programme varies in duration from 3 months to 1 year, depending on the needs of the individual, it comprises 20 hours of tuition a week.

If you are interested in a degree programme at Independent College Dublin but currently do not have the required English level we will recommend a pre-degree English programme and build a pathway for you.
