Costs & Tuition Fees
Gold Coast English Language School

Tuition fees and all homestay fees are held in trust accounts for student visa holders learning English at AICOL. We draw down week by week after course commencement.  This way unused tuition fees and homestay costs can be refunded where appropriate.

Some thin to think about when choosing where to study English

Consider .. do you want to study with a large international language school chain?
Do you want the individual personal attention you will receive at a high quality privately owned English School which pays attention to detail?

Costs and Tuition fees can be deceptive……..

  • AICOL guarantees that no class will have more than 15 students.
  • Some English schools on the Gold Coast have had up to 30 students in one class.
  • Obviously if there are more students per class the tuition fees should be considerably less as the learning opportunity is reduced because the teacher can spend less time with you.
  • Are the materials included or added to weekly fee?
