English Plus Professional Course in Dublin

Best for developing your professional skills in English

What are English Plus Professional Certificate Courses?

With our English Plus Professional Certificate program, students can combine a Kaplan English course with a concentrated course at Dublin Business School, Ireland’s largest independent third level college.

Our curriculum combines English and IELTS Exam Preparation lessons at our Dublin English school, before a 12-week certificate at Dublin Business School where students will choose to specialise in International Business, Sales or Tourism Marketing. 

Explore a range of business-specific topics, building valuable skills that boost career potential in a variety of industries and enterprises. Upon completion of the course, students will gain an IELTS and English qualification certificate from Kaplan, alongside a Certificate in International Business, Sales or Tourism Marketing worth ECTS worth 30 ECTS credits.**

**The IELTS exam is optional, and comes at an additional cost which is not included in the course price. School staff will be on hand to find and book a test for any interested student, subject to availability. These courses are available to all students from the EU or students eligible for a 12-month working holiday visa in Ireland.
