Melbourne Language Centre has been recognised as an Endorsed Online Centre by NEAS–the peak ELICOS accreditation body in Australia. This distinction means that you can be assured of the high quality standards of our online courses.
For those of you who are currently in your home country, there is no need to delay your studies. You can study ELICOS now with the confidence that you will be able to commence your Australian pathway courses sooner.
Online delivery is also available to students who are in Australia and unable to attend face-to-face classes in Melbourne due to COVID-19 government restrictions. However, once these restrictions are lifted, student visa holders will be required to return to face-to-face learning in accordance with the requirements of the Department of Home Affairs.
English for Academic Purposes is specifically designed to prepare you for your continuing tertiary education, at Certificate, Diploma, Foundation Studies, Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels.
You are taught English language skills that will enable you to succeed in an academic environment. Presentation skills, essay writing, and comprehensive listening tasks all give you the best advantage when you go on to study at an Australian University.
You are also exposed to advanced grammar and language skills as well as academic areas including Academic Conventions in Footnoting and Referencing, The Art of Persuasion, and Long Essay Writing.
