Location Overview

Derry~Londonderry is Northern Ireland’s second city with a population of over 120,000. It is situated on the banks of the River Foyle, from which the school takes its name. Derry (which comes from the Gaelic name ‘Doire’ meaning ‘oak grove’) is one of the oldest continually inhabited areas of Ireland. Derry is Ireland’s only completely walled city and one of the finest examples in Europe.

It is a university city with a young population and exciting social scene. Derry is also a centre for cultural and musical creativity with great festivals and international events such as The Jazz and Big Band Festival; Celtronic Festival; Gasyard Féile as well as a host of other events.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre

I cannot recommend more highly the CELTA course at Foyle International. The professionalism, dedication and teaching from Kelly and Chris was absolutely first-rate. Whilst the course was very demanding, it was also greatly rewarding and proved to be excellent preparation for real teaching. After completing the course I was selected for the Irish JET programme to teach English in Japan, and have since ended up in International school teaching in Sweden. Brilliant course!
