Study in Australia at the English School you can trust. AICOL stayed open during COVID and we made a full refund to every student and agent who claimed. Many students and agents have told us we are the best English school in Australia!
We hold your student visa fees and homestay fees in a trust account and draw down weekly after course commencement. This is what enabled us to refund all fees during COVID and we will do so again if the need arises.
