Prepare and take the Cambridge exam in IrelandPrepare and take the Cambridge Exam (FCE and CAE) in Ireland.

The Cambridge Examinations take place in March, June and December. Our examination courses prepare students for all the components of the examinations: Reading, Use of English, Comprehension, Listening Comprehension and Speaking. Students will complete sample papers and examination practice.

Our classes are small and very intensive with every effort made to prepare students for every aspect of the examination on a daily basis ensuring adequate cover of each of the skills. Please note that students must be of an Upper Intermediate Level of English to take part in this course. A placement test will be administered on arrival at the school to confirm the student’s level of English.

Cork English College has run these courses for a number of years and our students have achieved excellent results. On average, we have a pass rate of 97% for candidates taking the FCE and CAE exams.

As CEC is now an OPEN Cambridge Testing centre, students have the possibility to take the FCE and CAE tests in the college. CEC is the ONLY computer based Testing Centre in Cork.
