Los estudiantes con visa que asisten a un curso en ICOT College están obligados por ley a tener una tasa de asistencia superior a 85%. Esto solo se puede lograr si se pierden no más de 18 días en el transcurso de 25 semanas. El Colegio recomienda encarecidamente a los estudiantes que completen sus 25 semanas completas de estudio en un bloque. El precio del libro de inglés general es de 35 € y el precio del libro IELTS es de 50 €. Los estudiantes no pueden asistir a la clase sin un libro.

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.

Cuando un estudiante recibe una carta de advertencia, debe completar el Formulario de solicitud en el sitio web de ICOT (www.icot.ie - vaya a Vida estudiantil y seleccione Formulario de solicitud) y solicitar “Regreso a la clase”. El estudiante en cuestión será devuelto a la lista y contactado para informarle de esto, y deberá regresar a clase el día señalado.

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.

Además de esto, ICOT está obligado a informar a GNIB de cualquier estudiante cuya asistencia caiga por debajo de 85% y la baja asistencia prolongada también resultará en el envío de cartas de advertencia. Si el alumno no mejora, se enviarán más advertencias.

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.

También se espera que los estudiantes europeos y otros que no tengan visas de estudiante asistan por completo, aunque no estén sujetos a las reglas de la GNIB, y pueden ser eliminados de la lista o expulsados por no asistir. Todos los estudiantes de ICOT College reciben el mismo trato. La no asistencia interrumpe la clase y el proceso de aprendizaje.

Los certificados universitarios ICOT solo se otorgan a los estudiantes que cumplen con el reglamento de asistencia 85% y toman el examen obligatorio de fin de curso. El precio del certificado es 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.
  • Las clases terminan a las 12:15 pm y 4:15 pm. Cualquiera que salga temprano no recibirá asistencia durante la segunda mitad de la clase. Si hay una emergencia, los estudiantes pueden solicitar permiso al Director de Estudios para salir hasta 15 minutos antes. El trabajo no será aceptado como motivo para salir temprano. Nadie puede irse más de 15 minutos antes sin perder la asistencia de esa mitad de la clase.

Se espera que los estudiantes participen voluntaria y activamente en todas y cada una de las actividades del aula, que hablen inglés en todo momento y que respeten a sus maestros y compañeros de clase. A los estudiantes que no cumplan con estas reglas se les puede pedir que abandonen el salón de clases con la pérdida de asistencia durante esa mitad de la clase.

Cualquier estudiante que se encuentre alterando la lista de asistencia en nombre de sí mismo o de cualquier otro estudiante puede ser expulsado sin previo aviso.

Ningún miembro del personal puede aceptar o solicitar dinero u obsequios a cambio de falsificar la asistencia. Cualquier solicitud de este tipo debe informarse a la dirección de inmediato.

Está prohibido que los estudiantes filmen o tomen fotografías durante la clase, sin el permiso del profesor y de los compañeros.

Cualquier estudiante cuyo nombre no esté en la lista de asistencia debe ir a la oficina de Recepción inmediatamente y no puede firmar la lista. En cualquier circunstancia, se prohíbe firmar al final de la lista de asistencia.

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.

Esto no incluye las vacaciones de Navidad cuando la escuela cierra durante 3 semanas y las vacaciones de Semana Santa cuando la escuela está cerrada durante 1 semana.

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:

  • Vacaciones de verano: 1 de junio - 30 de septiembre (4 meses)
  • Winter break: 15th December – 15th January (1 month)

En todas las demás ocasiones, el límite de tiempo actual de 20 horas de trabajo por semana se aplicará.

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.


Los estudiantes deben tener el libro del curso. La escuela permite 5 días hábiles (1 semana) sin un libro.

Si un estudiante elige asistir sin el libro, no se le dará asistencia y no se harán copias.


  • Libro de Inglés General: 35 €
  • Libro IELTS: 50 €


Está obligatorio 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.

Los estudiantes también pueden optar por tomar FCE (First Certificate English), CAE (Certificate of Advanced English) o IELTS en lugar de TIE, pero esta preferencia debe ser comunicada al Director de Estudios a su debido tiempo.

  • Students opt for FCE or CAE will be charged an additional fee of €90.
  • El precio del examen IELTS es de 220 €.

Si no asiste al examen para el que se ha inscrito un estudiante, será necesario pagar la tarifa completa del examen nuevamente para facilitar el cambio de reserva.
