Hundreds of students locked out of ‘closed’ language school reporters

Hundreds of students were locked out of their Dublin college when they attended for studies today after it ceased trading over the weekend.

The college, based on Dame Street, had about 300 English language students and 20 teachers.

Students had to refer to the college’s website for information on the closure.

“Alternative arrangements are being sought for students who have not completed their tuition period for them to continue their classes,” a statement on the college’s website said.

“Please check our website where information will be posted as it becomes available.

“Please note that these arrangements will take a few weeks to put in place.”

It added that management is now taking steps to have a liquidator appointed to wind down the business.

It is understood that some foreign students had paid course fees as recently as last week.

The college had attracted students from countries like Mexico, Brazil, the Philippines and South Korea.
