About DCAS

Established in 2007, Dublin College of Advanced Studies (DCAS) is an English language school with two campuses located in the heart of Dublin City. The school is committed to strive for perfection in an ever-evolving and competitive education sector. Over time, we have assembled a team of diligent, experienced, friendly, committed and passionate teachers who support students towards their language learning goals. All of the team at DCAS, management, administration and the teaching faculty, endeavour to deliver memorable student experiences and quality General English and IELTS preparation programmes in an environment conducive to learning. The school is recognised by the Department of Education and Skills and Department of Justice and Equality, offering its programmes to international students.

Our mission is to help learners master the skills needed to engage in the global community.



Our campuses are both within 10 minutes’ walk of The Spire on O'Connell Street and are easily accessible by public transport. The exceptionally central locations of the school give students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich fabric of social and cultural life that can be found in Ireland’s capital.
