What about my course?
You can attend your GCI classes virtually and use our e-learning platform. We will live-stream the lessons to you, so that you will join the classes at the normal time, and be with everyone in our GCI classroom virtually. You will still be able to get to know your teacher and classmates.
What about accommodation?
You have the choice of either staying with a host family or in one of our student residences. Please note that during the self-isolation period only residential accommodation is available in order to minimise social contact.
What happens if the school has to close during my course?
If a student or a member of staff contracts COVID-19, the school may need to close temporarily for deep cleaning. During this period, all courses will be moved online.
What happens if I get symptoms of COVID- 19 while studying at GCI?
We will be asking all our students to tell us immediately if they feel unwell, either by calling the school during opening hours or calling the emergency number outside opening hours and if they suspect they have COVID-19 symptoms.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 then you must self-isolate for at least 10 days. You must also get in touch with your GP and request a Covid-19 test. You do not need to pay for a COVID-19 test in Ireland.
Can I still book a course with GCI?
We are offering a special promotion for General English courses starting from September onward, where you can save up to 25% on course fees.

You can still book online courses if you wish to study remotely from your own country in a hybrid style delivery mode.
