ELICOS COURSES

ELICOS is the common abbreviation for English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students.

‘Overseas students’ are people who hold a student visa issued by the Australian Government.

Overseas students choose ELICOS courses for a variety of reasons. For example, some students may want to improve their academic English skills to prepare for further studies. Others may want to focus on general English-language skills to expand their social and networking opportunities in Australia.

Even if you already have a good grasp of English, attending a course can be a good opportunity to make the final leap in quality and obtain a language certification.

WHAT IS THE POINT OF OBTAINING A LANGUAGE CERTIFICATE?

A language certificate is useful if you want to invest in a long-term study program, such as a professional course or university that has a basic requirement of sufficient knowledge of English and a certificate.

In addition, having a certificate is useful if you want to undertake a path of immigration. To apply for residence, a certificate in the language appropriate to the profession being pursued is required.
