Centre of English Studies (CES)

CES is a family run language school.  Founded in 1979, CES has grown to an international language school with 8 year-round centres in Ireland, England, Scotland and Canada. 

All of our teachers in Ireland hold a university degree plus an ACELS recognised teaching qualification. In Canada, all of our teachers are degree qualified and TESL Canada certified.  In the UK, all teachers have the Trinity TESOL Certificate, CELTA or other recognised teaching qualifications, with many holding specialist EFL teaching diplomas and degrees.

All CES schools offer homestay accommodation and a wide variety of alternative accommodation options including residential and hotel accommodation available at select schools on request.

CES is a multi-award winning school that has been recognised by independent and external sources such as Study Travel Magazine (Worldwide), Languagecourses.Net (Worldwide), Ryugaku Journal (Japan), and UED (Turkey).

CES is recognised and accredited by the British Council in the UK, ACELS (the Irish Department of Education) in Ireland, and by Languages Canada in Canada.

CES is proud to have four year-round schools as full EAQUALS members.

Our CES schools in Dublin, Leeds, Harrogate and Toronto are official IELTS and Cambridge Test Centres. Dublin, Leeds and Harrogate are also OET test centres.

CES is a IALC member school and a member of ALTO.

All our schools in the UK are full members of English UK.

Our motto is Care, Excellence and Success!
