Eaquals unveils set of new members

International language school accreditation body Eaquals has welcomed eight newly accredited members in the first part of 2017, spread across six countries.

Dr Lou McLaughlin, Executive Director of the association, told StudyTravel Magazine, "The new members reflect the diversity of Eaquals membership, which ranges from private language institutions to third-level university language departments.


"In keeping with the international reach of Eaquals, the joining members are from a variety of countries - Ireland, Poland, Belgium, Romania, Turkey and Saudi Arabia - and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to Eaquals."


Three of the new Eaquals schools are from Ireland: Castel International Education; Active Language Learning; and Future Learning.


David Ganly, Managing Director of Future Learning, said, "For three years we have been engaged with Eaquals on an ongoing basis. To receive the news that we have achieved accredited membership is just incredible, and we are so proud and privileged to be part of this wonderful organisation. Future Learning set out from day one to be different, innovative and exciting, and for Eaquals to now approve our concept makes us feel like all the hard work has been worth it."


The other new accredited language providers in the association are: Babes Bolyai University, Romania; Lódz University of Technology, Poland; Isik University, Turkey; CLL, Belgium; and King Faisal Air Academy, English Department (KFAA ED), Saudi Arabia.
