Future Learning’s number one priority is the health and safety of our students, teachers and staff.
During this situation, all our staff is working hard to support our students, host families and the community as we tackle this challenge together.
Please read below for more information and get in touch with us if you need any advice or assistance.

We are extremely happy to announce that our Dublin City Campus is now fully reopened and welcoming students for the new 2021/2022 Academic Year for new international students and renewals.
The lessons are taught in person, Monday to Friday and in full compliance with all relevant public health guidelines.

Following public health advice, the government has agreed that the remaining aspects of the hospitality, entertainment and night-time economy sector can reopen only with the full range of protective measures in place and the wide and robust implementation of the EU Digital COVID Certificate (COVID-19 pass). This will allow us to move forward carefully with Ireland’s plan for the next phase of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Campus Safety Measures for 2021/2022 Academic Year

  • Returning to face to face lessons on campus in accordance with sector-specific health and safety protocols.
  • Classes will be Monday to Friday with staggered starting times and breaks.
