After Registration and Orientation, General English students will take the English Placement Test, before being placed in the appropriate class. Students in other courses who have already been tested will be given their textbooks and introduced to their class.
You will have access to computers with internet. Greenwich English College also offers free wireless internet access for students with laptop computers.
All textbooks are included in your “Materials Fees”, so you will not need to pay for any more books throughout your course.
This varies between every student. On average, students studying English courses at Greenwich English College move from one level to the next in approximately 8-10 weeks. If you work hard and speak only English while you are here, you should improve quickly.
Holiday leave will only be granted under special circumstances. You must submit a written request to be approved by the College management.
Everyone at Greenwich English College wants your time at the College and in Australia to be a memorable learning experience so we are here to help. Our Student Advisors are always available and can offer counselling in your own language.
It is a Student Visa condition that you have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the duration of your stay in Australia. OSHC will contribute towards medical and hospital expenses that you may incur.
Greenwich can arrange your OSHC with Medibank International for you at the time of application. Please note this on your enrolment form.
