Euro Languages College Information

Pocket Money

All pocket money is to be banked with the Course Manager on the day of arrival. A debit card system will be run so that the students can pay for items in the tuck shop or send clothes to the launderette; this means that students do not have to keep cash on their person during the course. Euro Languages College International Ltd. will not be liable for any money not lodged in the bank. Students will be facilitated to withdraw money prior to the Sunday visit.

Medical Attention/Medicines

A nurse will attend the college twice daily. A doctor is on call at all times. Students requiring medical attention will be brought to the doctor or nearest hospital. Medical costs will be deducted from the student's bank account. Please ensure that pocket money is adequate to cover such deductions.  Dangerous medicines/drugs must be handed over to the course manager during registration. These will be dispensed as necessary throughout the course.

Tuck may be purchased from the college tuck shop. No tuck or drinks may be consumed or stored in dormitories.

Religious Services

Sunday Mass will be held in each college when a priest is available. Minority religions will be catered for wherever possible in local churches. Parents must accept responsibility for students who attend services other than those held in the college.

Dictionaries/Writing Materials

Students are requested to bring their own dictionaries, a copy book and writing materials.


Due to limited hanging/wardrobe space, students are requested to bring the minimum amount of clothes necessary. These should be suitable for a summer camp. They should be colourfast, non-shrinkable, machine washable and clearly marked with the identity of the student. Students should also bring clothes hangers and some old clothes for use in concerts, drama and fancy dress.


Students must bring their own bed linen (sheets, pillows, pillowcases) and duvets or sleeping bags, as these are not supplied at any of the colleges. Students must also bring their own towels.


Facilities for the hand washing, rinsing and drying of "smalls" are available in each college. The optional facility of sending clothes to a laundry will be available at a normal cost. Euro Languages College is not responsible for the damage to or loss of any clothes sent to the laundry/launderette.


Clongowes Wood College has an indoor swimming pool. Depending on college location and the weather, students attending colleges with no pool may be taken to swim under supervision to local areas/pools (cost to be borne by students). Please indicate if for any reason you do not wish your child to swim at the appropriate question at the booking stage.

Sports Gear And Equipment

Euro Languages College provides all sports equipment needed for activities. Students should bring their own sports gear (shoes, boots, swimwear and swimming caps etc.). Please ensure that these are clearly marked. In the interest of their own safety students playing basketball are requested to wear basketball boots. Flips flops are needed for the swimming pool area of Clongowes Wood College.

Musical Instruments

Students are requested to bring musical instruments to add to the evening's entertainment. Again please ensure that these are easily identifiable. Note: Please refer to section on insurance.


Students should bring a small padlock and key as lockers may be provided in some schools.

Student Belongings

We would like to advise students to leave at home personal items of value or items that are easily broken (e.g. watches or clothes) that are not essential for a summer camp environment, as Euro Languages College takes no responsibility for student belongings.
