The NW Academy is accredited by the British Council, Accreditation UK, and ISO 9001 quality assurance scheme, and is an exam centre for Cambridge, IELTS, and Trinity exams. We also offer Secure English Language Test (SELT) preparation courses for students who require these qualifications for VISA purposes.
We are based in a large, modern building, close to the city centre. The building was designed by RIBA Awards 2015 Royal Gold Medal winners O’Donnell + Tuomey and was awarded 2nd place in the 2011 Stirling Prize for Architecture. We are excited to offer a variety of campus-style amenities, such as an onsite café, student lounge, IT area, book-lending facility, and 9 fully equipped, modern classrooms. We also have access to a large hall which can be used for a range of events including theatre and dance performances, concerts and conferences. It can also be used as an assembly point for students, a facility for social activities, and a venue for student inductions and meetings. The building as a whole provides students with a comfortable, welcoming environment in which to study English, relax with friends or simply have a cup of coffee while listening to live Irish music.
