1At GCI we specialise in exam preparation courses. We are an official Cambridge exam testing centre and students can also sit IELTS exams in Galway.
2Through our internationally accredited sister school the Galway Business School we are able to offer students studying English the option to gain awards in different business disciplines while improving their English. Students even have the option to pursue a degree in business should they wish.
At GCI we also pride ourselves on our small class sizes. The absolute maximum size of a class in GCI is 14 students; this allows students the ability to engage with the teacher and other students. These small class sizes paired with the level of excellence of our teaching staff creates an environment where any student can learn English effectively.
