Language pathway (conditional offer) is available

The Academic English Program (AEP) is designed for students who plan to study at an Australian university or who are interested in developing academic reading, writing, listening and communication skills. 

It is taught in 10 week terms, with start dates approximately every five weeks.

It is designed to improve your English and study skills, enabling you to be successful in your diploma and PQP courses at ECC as well as under or postgraduate programs at ECU. 

No further English testing is required (except for Nursing and other higher English course requirements). Therefore, with a minimum of 65%, you are able to graduate to the next AEP level or your designated course.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate their English language proficiency before they enter an ECC program.

English language proficiency can be determined by submitting evidence of Year 12 studies or IELTS Test scores, or Pearson English Test scores or equivalent as shown in the table below.
