Els estudiants de visats que assisteixen a un curs a l’ICOT College estan obligats per llei a tenir una taxa d’assistència superior a 85%. Això només es pot aconseguir si falten no més de 18 dies al llarg de 25 setmanes. El Col·legi anima encaridament els estudiants a completar les seves 25 setmanes completes d'estudi en un bloc. El preu del llibre anglès general és de 35 € i el preu del llibre IELTS és de 50 €. No es permet als estudiants assistir a la classe sense llibre.

Students who miss any 2 days or any 4 classes in any given week will be removed from the attendance list and sent a warning letter. Attendance will continue to decrease as long as a student is off the list and does not return.

Quan un estudiant rep una carta d’advertència, ha d’omplir el formulari de sol·licitud al lloc web de l’ICOT (www.icot.ie - anar a Vida estudiantil i triar el formulari de sol·licitud) i sol·licitar “Tornar a classe”. A continuació, l'estudiant interessat serà retornat a la llista i contactat per informar-li d'això i haurà de tornar a classe el dia assenyalat.

Any student who does not fill in the Request Form within a week of being removed from the list will receive a second warning letter. Likewise, a second offence will result in a second warning letter.

After three warning letters have been received, the next offence will result in expulsion and the GNIB being contacted. Please note that ICOT College is not obliged to send three warning letters prior to expulsion. Students who are proved not to be genuine students, or who engage in abusive behaviour, may be expelled without notice.

The student has 5 working days to reply and resolve the issue. If there are mitigating circumstances, students may appeal their removal from the school register through the ICOT website and by requesting “Appeal against Expulsion”. The student will be called for a meeting attended by an ICOT College Senior Administration staff member. ICOT College will present the student with a copy of all recorded warnings and their Attendance Record. The student will have an opportunity to make their case, for example, an illness with the requisite doctor’s note or compassionate leave. Any judgment will be made in coherence with ICOT College’s stated principles regarding attendance and in strict accordance with the regulations from the GNIB regarding visa students. If in doubt, the College will contact the GNIB and seek clarification.

A més d'això, l'ICOT està obligada a informar el GNIB de qualsevol estudiant que tingui una assistència inferior a 85% i una baixa assistència prolongada també comportarà l'enviament de cartes d'advertència. Si l'estudiant no millora, s'enviaran més avisos.

In case of sickness, students must contact the school on the first day and each subsequent day, and present a doctor’s certificate on returning to school. Without this proof, it will be classed as an unauthorised absence, and warnings will be sent. Medical certificates cannot and do not replace attendance, but are used to justify low attendance to the College and to GNIB.

També s’espera que els estudiants europeus i altres que no tinguin visat d’estudiant assisteixin plenament, tot i que no estan obligats per les normes GNIB i poden ser eliminats de la llista o expulsats per no assistència. Tots els estudiants de l’ICOT College són tractats per igual. La manca d’assistència perjudica la classe i el procés d’aprenentatge.

Els certificats universitaris ICOT només s’atorguen als estudiants que compleixin la normativa d’assistència 85% i presentin l’examen obligatori de final de curs. El preu del certificat és de 15 €.

  • Classes start at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. Students should do their best to arrive at these times as they will not receive attendance for the first half of class if they arrive more than 15 minutes late. Students arriving up to 15 minutes late must not disturb the class as they enter.
  • Les classes acaben a les 12:15 i a les 16:15. Qualsevol persona que marxi aviat no rebrà assistència a la segona meitat de la classe. En cas d’emergència, els estudiants poden sol·licitar permís al director d’estudis per sortir fins a 15 minuts abans. No s’acceptarà feina com a motiu per marxar abans. Ningú no pot marxar més de 15 minuts abans sense perdre l’assistència d’aquella meitat de la classe.

S'espera que els estudiants participin voluntàriament i activament en totes les activitats de l'aula, que parlin anglès en tot moment i que respectin el seu professor i els companys de classe. Es pot demanar als estudiants que no compleixin aquestes normes que abandonin l’aula amb la pèrdua d’assistència d’aquella meitat de classe.

Qualsevol estudiant que estigui manipulant la llista d'assistència en nom seu o de qualsevol altre estudiant pot ser expulsat sense previ avís.

Cap membre del personal no pot acceptar ni sol·licitar diners o regals a canvi de falsificar l'assistència. Qualsevol sol·licitud d’aquest tipus s’ha de comunicar immediatament a la direcció.

Es prohibeix als estudiants filmar o fer fotografies durant la classe, sense el permís del professor i dels companys.

Qualsevol estudiant el nom del qual no aparegui a la llista d’assistència ha d’anar a l’oficina de recepció immediatament i no pot signar la llista. En qualsevol cas, està prohibit signar a la part inferior de la llista d’assistència.

Students may not leave the classroom for significant lengths of time during the class. The teacher may remove his or her attendance for absences of more than 15 minutes.


The ICOT online platform allows teachers and students to interact in a dynamic way, so the teacher may ask you to turn on your microphone and camera to interact with him/her, answer questions displayed on the screen, follow a digital board to make examples, etc. Sharing your personal data/log-ins with individuals not enrolled at ICOT College is strictly prohibited. This may result in expulsion and no refund of fees will be given.


Students are allowed to take a holiday after studying for at least 8 weeks and with at least 80% attendance. Students can take up to 1/3 of the time that they have already studied. For example, after 9 weeks students can have 3 weeks holiday, and after 12 weeks, they can have 4 weeks holiday. Holidays must be booked at least 3 days in advance and will depend on their attendance.

Holidays may be granted outside these conditions in cases of extenuating circumstances. In that case students should provide proof.

Això no inclou les vacances de Nadal quan l’escola tanca durant 3 setmanes i les vacances de Setmana Santa quan l’escola tanca 1 setmana.

Student holiday periods from 1st January 2015 – understanding the new rules

Changes coming in from January under a new government policy will standardise the holiday periods in which international students can work for all types of course – from English Language to PhD. Students on English programmes in particular have been used to very flexible holiday periods in the past and will need to consider what the changes will mean for them.

From 01 September 2016, non-EU/EEA International Students will be able to work full-time (up to 40 hours per week) during two periods of the year only – reflecting the traditional summer and winter college holidays:

  • Vacances d’estiu: 1 de juny - 30 de setembre (4 mesos)
  • Winter break: 15th December – 15th January (1 month)

En la resta, el límit actual de termini de 20 hores laborals a la setmana s'aplicarà.

It should be noted also that the hours specified are the maximum that a student can work in any given week and not an average over time. A student who is working for more than one employer remains subject to the overall limits (e.g. during the period when the 20 hour limit applies a student could not work 15 hours each for 2 employers). The permission to work ceases on the expiry of the students Stamp 2 immigration permission.


Els estudiants han de tenir el llibre per al curs. L’escola permet que 5 dies laborables (1 setmana) estiguin sense llibre.

Si un estudiant opta per assistir sense el llibre, no es donarà assistència ni es faran còpies.


  • Llibre anglès general: 35 €
  • Llibre IELTS: 50 €


És obligatori to every student visa that the student takes an external exam at the end of each course. The College will register students for TIE (Test of Interactive English) and the student agrees to prepare for and take the exam on the date specified by the Director of Studies. Examination rules will be emailed to the students. TIE exam fee is €130. In certain circumstances it may be necessary for students to take TIE in the TIE examination centre on Leeson Street. In this event, directions will be provided with plenty of notice. In all other cases TIE will be held on the school premises.

Els estudiants també poden optar per cursar FCE (First Certificate English), CAE (Certificate of Advanced English) o IELTS en lloc de TIE, però aquesta preferència s’ha de comunicar amb antelació al director d’estudis.

  • Students opt for FCE or CAE will be charged an additional fee of €90.
  • El preu de l’examen IELTS és de 220 €.

La manca d’assistència a l’examen en què s’hagi inscrit un estudiant haurà de tornar a pagar la quota completa de l’examen per facilitar la reserva.
