The English Language Centre (ELC) is based at the Armidale campus of UNE. As one of Australia's oldest universities, UNE has a 77-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 easy-going and unpolluted environment, it is the ideal place for students to live while studying.
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 nee
