Our English for Academic Purposes course prepares international students who want an advanced level of English.  It is for students who are preparing to sit an IELTS or Cambridge CAE  test for university or vocational study in Australia, for work, for pleasure or for immigration.

Our classes are small and therefore allow for plenty of individual attention from our highly experienced teachers.

The class content focuses on developing skills for academic context in writing, reading, listening and speaking.  English grammar and vocabulary are studied at an advanced level. In addition, the course develops research and critical thinking skills, and students practice oral and written presentations. AICOL is an IELTS pretest centre.

Through a variety of carefully chosen exercises, students become aware of the different tasks and strategies required for achieving a high score in IELTS examinations. Regular weekly IELTS Practice Tests give students the opportunity to apply their knowledge and improve their time management. Our English for Academic Purposes class also includes past CAE tests practice.

This class is suitable for students at Upper-Intermediate level and above.
