Course Information

If you want to improve your English skills for further study in Australia, our Academic English courses can help you.

Navitas English has more than 70 direct entry higher education partners. They include universities, colleges, Technical & Further Education (TAFE), Vocational Education & Training (VET) and Registered Training Organisations (RTO). Our courses have pathways to master’s, bachelor’s, diploma and certificate programs.

If you successfully complete Academic English, you do NOT need to sit the IELTS test to prove your English language proficiency to our direct entry partners (provided you meet all the other course requirements).

Academic English can be very different to the English you use every day. Even if you speak English well in conversation, it might be difficult to understand the new words and structures used in university or another academic setting.

In this course, you will develop skills in academic proficiency and literacy in English. You will find it easier to understand and participate in your university course. If you complete the Academic English course successfully, you will be able to use English in a variety of academic contexts and take responsibility for your progress with little support from teachers.
