General English

The Institute’s general English programmes range from beginner level, where learners have very limited English language skills, to advanced level which offers a far more sophisticated command of reading, writing, speaking and listening.


English for academic purposes (EAP) is a dedicated, intensive programme sharply focused on providing learners with the English language skills they will need for successful under-graduate or post-graduate study in higher education in Australia or other English speaking countries.


The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a very well-known and highly regarded mechanism for demonstrating skill levels in English speaking, listening, reading and writing. It is used by many academic institutions as part of their selection and admission process.


The Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE) is the world’s leading computer-based test of English reading, writing, speaking and listening for study abroad and immigration. It offers learners the fastest, fairest and most flexible way of proving their English language proficiency for immigration and student visas.
