Centre for English Teaching

Empowering students through innovative learning and support
We provide specialised English language programs to students and professionals in a range of areas to advance their academic and professional skills.

Please note: In line with the University's return to on-campus teaching in Semester 1, 2023, and to comply with visa regulations, the Centre for English Teaching will return to face-to-face teaching from 1 July 2023. Offshore international students have been given one semester leniency to obtain their visa and make travel arrangements to return to face-to-face learning prior to 1 July 2023.

The Centre for English Teaching is strongly encouraging students to join their courses face-to-face. Courses commencing after 1 July 2023 will no longer offer an online study option. For more info:
