MEI is the organisation that is synonymous with English language schools in Ireland. Over 90% of international students learning English in Ireland choose to study with an MEI Member school because they provide a diverse range of high quality programmes suited to students of all ages.

MEI offers students a wide range of study options; Private or government; independent or attached to a high school; private vocational provider or university. Study in a small boutique college or a large international provider.

The safety and welfare of every student is extremely important to our organisation. Our member schools have built longstanding relationships with warm and welcoming host families all of whom are vetted and checked by MEI.
MEI schools also espouse Learner Protection, thereby being able to guarantee to students that they will be able to complete all language courses for which they are enrolled.
MEI works closely with the government and relative bodies to ensure the highest standards are maintained. All MEI schools are accredited by the Irish Government Department of Education & Skills. This process ensures that the facilities and the programmes on offer are of a superior quality. In addition MEI members must adhere to the association’s own rules, regulations and standards.
While Ireland is a dynamic, lively and modern country with a young population and a successful, technologically-orientated economy, it also remains a country steeped in culture and tradition where music, conversation and making friends matters. Ireland is renowned for its beautiful, unspoiled countryside and scenery.
