More information about The University of New England (UNE) - English Language Centre Add
The English Language Centre (ELC) is based at the Armidale campus of UNE. As one of Australia's oldest universities, UNE has a 75-year tradition of excellence in teaching, learning and research. Studying at the ELC on the UNE campus, students enjoy a perfect balance between high educational standards and an outstanding lifestyle.
The UNE English Language Centre is a fully accredited, university-based language centre with modern teaching materials, facilities and methods. As an integral part of the university, students can progress from basic language learning to internationally recognised undergraduate and postgraduate degrees on the same campus.
One of the greatest benefits of studying at the UNE English Language Centre is the relaxed lifestyle of the campus and Armidale in general. Armidale is a friendly, vibrant community and is complemented by a surrounding landscape of rolling hills and masses of eucalyptus trees that lead to dramatic gorges and waterfalls within easy distance of the city itself. With an easygoing and unpolluted environment, it is the ideal place for students to live while studying.
International Services (IS) provides support for all international students enrolled at UNE. IS provides students with a link between the administrative and academic functions of the university during their enrolment and assists students to access academic support and pastoral care services offered by the university.
IS also assists students with issues related to accommodation (including homestay), visas, schooling and adjusting to the Armidale and Australian way of life. IS can also refer students to additional support services available at UNE, including counselling, academic skills and medical services.
General English (GE)
The GE course is for any student from a non-English-speaking background. Basic communication skills in English are an advantage but the ELC caters for all English language abilities. The GE course also provides entry into English for Academic Purposes (EAP) for students who do not initially meet the EAP entry requirements.
English for Academic Purposes (EAP)
EAP is for students who wish to develop English language proficiency and study skills for tertiary study in Australia. The EAP course offers direct entry into UNE for those students who meet the academic requirements of their chosen UNE program but lack the English language proficiency needed for entry. EAP can also be undertaken by students who wish to improve their English language skills to an advanced level, but do not necessarily wish to undertake further tertiary study.
Introductory Academic Program (IAP)
IAP is designed for students who are intending to study in an Australian university for the first time. It is also for students who wish to update their study skills and English language skills prior to commencing undergraduate or postgraduate study. The IAP program is ideal for students who meet university entry requirements or who have accepted a place at university in Australia and require study assistance to meet their academic goals.
