English Language Courses
CQUniversity’s English courses include the English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS) and a suite of TAFE courses in spoken and written English. ELICOS provides English language units for international students. Units include general English, International English Language Testing System (IELTS) preparation and English for Academic Purposes (EAP).
General English classes will suit you if you are a beginner or have some English skills and want to improve them. These classes focus on practical English; writing letters or email, shopping lists, filling in forms, reading instructions or magazines and newspapers. IELTS preparation is a more advanced-level class, suitable for you if you are preparing to sit the IELTS exam. An acceptable IELTS band score fulfils the English language entry requirements for many degrees at CQUniversity. EAP classes are great if you would like to learn academic English. The content is very similar to IELTS preparation, but there is more focus on referencing, essay writing and presentation, information literacy and note-taking for lectures.
Our TAFE English courses provide general language education, and are primarily targeted to newly-arrived migrants and refugees who need to develop language skills to participate in a range of community contexts.
