EAP and IELTS Preparation
All of our academic English students are planning to study at universities or other higher education colleges in Australia or elsewhere. Some may need to show an IELTS score to gain entry to their chosen course, others may be on one of ELC’s pathway programs and not require an IELTS score. Our Academic English course is tailored to meet the needs of students in both situations.
To help both EAP and IELTS students you will have weekly individual sessions with the Academic English coordinators who will create and manage your personal study plan, tailor the course to your needs, and give you feedback on your progress towards your IELTS or EAP goals or advice on your future studies. Students working towards EAP and direct entry can get extra personal assistance with their essay writing and research skills, while students preparing for the IELTS test can also use these tutorials to practice their speaking test interviews.
