Academic English (IELTS)
Academic English - IELTS
(CRICOS Code 021674F)
The Academic English program is a full time IELTS test preparation course for students at intermediate level or above.
A prescribed IELTS (International English Language Testing System) score is now required by many Australian and British universities and colleges as a qualification for entry into a formal program. It is a comprehensive test of English language proficiency designed to assess the ability of non-native speakers. It is highly recommended for those who need to use English in an Academic or Professional context. IELTS exams are held every four weeks in Brisbane.
We can assist you to register for the exam.
Each module of the exam is graded separately as a ‘Band Score’. The module scores are added together to provide an overall Band Score. Band scores range from 1 (non user) to 9 (expert user). Most universities and institutions of higher education will ask for an overall Band Score (generally between 5.5 for undergraduate programs to 6.5 for post-graduate programs).
This program thoroughly and systematically prepares the student for all aspects of the IELTS examination – reading, writing, listening and speaking.
Other skills covered include:
Listening and Note Taking;
Academic Reading and Writing;
Report and Essay Writing;
Library and Research Skills.
Students have regular exam practice sessions using past IELTS papers. They learn IELTS exam techniques and strategies for achieving the best possible result.
