Since 1989, Galway Cultural Institute has provided English language programmes to students from all over the world - in fact, we have welcomed people from more than 30 countries. It all began with Celestine Rowland’s passion for education and learning, providing short-term English language and part-time courses. Over the years GCI has grown into a flourishing institution providing nurturing support and excellent language training to thousands of students around the world. GCI has had a few different homes before moving into our wonderful building on the Salthill promenade, with breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean on the Wild Atlantic Way . In 2010, we opened our sister organisation, Galway Business School that offers third-level business courses. Our facilities are excellent and our teachers are the best. For nearly 30 years now, we have seen happy smiles on the school’s corridors, the faces of our brilliant students who have made Galway Cultural Institute their second home. We feel proud of the inspiring sentiments that these smiles portray: the relaxed feeling while they are with us, the accomplishment of learning a new language, the cherishing of new friendships and the beautiful memories intrinsic to our school. So, come and join our family, your future starts here.
