Another English language school has closed in Dublin.

A2Z School of English placed a notice on its door informing students of what it called its temporary closure "due to unforeseen circumstances".

It is understood the college catered for a small number of students, mainly from within the EU.

RTÉ News is aware of one student who paid the college €1,800 for an 18-week course, which he began two weeks ago.

A2Z has told this student in correspondence that the chance of an immediate reimbursement of his fees is "quite remote".

In an email, the college suggested he could move to one of two colleges that it operates in the UK.

Failing that, it suggested that he could try to sell this option to a friend or other acquaintance, and get the fees he paid back in this way.
