About the school

Cork English College (CEC) is one of Ireland’s premier English language colleges located in Ireland’s largest county of Cork, on the country’s southwest coast. The fantastic school is in the very heart of Cork city on the banks of the River Lee and has been helping students to learn English for over 40-years.

A family-run business established by Managing Director, Valery Cullen and now managed with her son Marc (Marketing Director), you instantly feel the pride they have in their city, and the pride the whole CEC team takes in the teaching and experiences they offer each and every international student who joins them in Cork.

Cork offers a better cost of living to students as things like accommodation can be less than in some of Ireland’s larger cities. The school offers a great learning experience and matches the warmth, friendliness and humour always found in Cork.
