ANOTHER COLLEGE CATERING for international students has closed, making it the seventh in the last five months.

Language school ‘English in Dublin’ announced that it is to go into liquidation, just a week after informing students that it was on “temporary holiday” to allow for relocation from their Merrion Square building.

Last week, the school told students on its Facebook page that it will be closed until 22 September and assured students that “we will make up any missed classes by adding more when we reopen”.

This was repeated in a separate post a number of days later but the school has announced today that it will not be reopening.
