We value education, innovation and intercultural exchange. Students will appreciate our commitment to best practices in teaching and learning and aim to foster a supportive learning environment for our Students.

Our goals are to deliver high quality education services, to provide Students with a supportive environment so that they achieve their full learning potential and learning outcomes, and to equip Students with the skills they need in order to fulfil their learning needs.

Our ELICOS Teachers are qualified professionals who care for each individual Student’s progress. They regularly coach Students on a one-to-one basis in order to provide feedback on their progress and advise on how to address their weaknesses and build upon their strengths. We are particularly focussed on supporting Students in achieving their professional goals.

The General English Program focuses on general and vocational themes to prepare Students with skills for life and work whilst living in Australia. It is designed in consultation with the Students themselves in order to address their specific needs, and hence can be tailored to individual needs. Students are also guided to develop the skills they need to operate in an English-speaking workplace, such as conducting telephone conversations, participating in meetings and giving presentations.

The English for Academic Purposes Programs focus on guiding Students towards their chosen academic pathway, whether it is for entry to a VET course, a Foundation programme, an undergraduate degree program or postgraduate study at an Australian University. Additionally, Students receive coaching in the requirements of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

Each Program has specific measurable outcomes and we support Students in achieving their desired level of English Proficiency to gain access to their chosen pathway.

On successful completion of each Level of the General English program, the General English levels will equate with the following:
