Another English language college has closed

It is at least the eighth school to close in recent months.

A PRIVATE COLLEGE for international students in Dublin has shut down.

Leinster College, based in Dublin’s Harcourt Street had last week announced it would close temporarily because of a weak trading position.

The sudden closure shocked both students and staff, with SIPTU stating that they are “concerned” for the employees.

Today, the college posted an urgent notice on their website that read:

Due to change (sic) in trading conditions Leinster College has ceased to trade with immediate effect.

We apologised (sic) for inconvenience caused to all our clients and staff members.

The college had around 200 students and 20 staff.

Hundreds of students were left without courses after Eden College closed in April. At least eight schools have closed since then.

Calls to Leinster College went unanswered.
