Škola ponúka široký výber kurzov, počnúc kurzom všeobecnej angličtiny, prípravné kurzy na rôzne skúšky ale aj kombinované kurzy. Výnimkou nie sú ani súkromné kurzy 1-1 pre firmy, kde sa iba jeden učiteľ venuje jednému študentovi. Pre mladších študentov a tínedžerov sú v ponuke zaujímavé letné kurzy so skupinovým vedúcim, pričom škola organizuje aj pobyty pre skupinky so Slovenska, kde na pobyt vycestujú žiaci či študenti aj pedagogickým dozorom. Z medzi dlhodobých kurzov sú v ponuke akademický rok alebo polrok, ktoré sú vzhľadom na nízke ceny za ubytovanie veľmi populárne.

Okolie ponúka študentom bezpečné miesto na štúdium v príjemnej komunite Írskeho mestečka na juhovýchode krajiny, kde ceny za ubytovanie a služby ešte nedosahujú takú vysokú úroveň ako v hlavnom meste. Mestečko nie je veľké, ale skrýva v sebe kus histórie, preto študenti v okolí nájdu historické pamiatky ale aj turistické atrakcie či prekrásne scenérie ako stvorené na relax.

Dostupnosť do mesta je naozaj veľmi dobrá, študenti majú na výber dopraviť sa z Dublinského letiska autobusom, ktorý odchádza priamo z letiska. Cesta trvá asi 2,15 minút. Druhou možnosťou je vlak, na ktorý môžu presadnúť na slávnej Heuston station v centre mesta, kam sa dostanú zrýchlenou linkou 747 asi za 30 minút. Ubytovanie pre študentov v rezidencii sa nachádza iba 20 minút pešo od školy, skladá sa z 9 blokov, kde je spolu ubytovaných asi 900 študentov. Rezidencia je využívaná počas školského roka študentmi Waterfordského technologického inštitútu a v letných mesiacoch ju pre zmenu zasa využívajú mladší študenti, zúčastňujúci sa letných kurzov.
