English
Requirements

What are the requirements?

The language of instruction at AIBTGlobal is English. International students must demonstrate a suitable level of English language proficiency before being admitted into a course. This can be done by obtaining one of the results shown under “English Competency Level Required” for the relevant level of study. International Students who do not meet the English language requirements for the course they wish to study may undertake English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS) according to the “English Learning Matrix”.

ELICOS Students who wish to proceed into an AQF Level and study a qualification with AIBTGlobal will need to pass ELICOS exams at at the end of each completed level.

The number of ELICOS weeks required is an estimate only.
