English for Academic Preparation

Flinders University

IELI specialises in preparing students for university study in Australia or other English speaking countries. Students who study at IELI have an edge over students to enter university through exam preparation courses. These courses teach a narrow range of skills which do not fully prepare students for the complexity of university assignments. University study requires more than a knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary. Each culture has its own traditions for learning and presenting information. IELI helps students become more flexible in their learning strategies through content instruction and step by step guidance for completing academic assignments. IELI teachers are interested in a wide range of topics and their enthusiasm make the academic course interesting and dynamic. Student often comment that they learn not only English at IELI, but also learn important knowledge about challenges, discoveries and current issues in the world.
