Regardless of which option students select, they will be able to interact with our teachers and ask questions. Courses are 10 hours in duration, 2 hours per day, over one week.

All courses are accompanied by our renowned Dublin Academy study notes. If students opt for Live-streamed courses, our study notes will be posted to their homes free of charge.
