English Language Skills
Well-developed English language skills are vital to study and work in Australia. That’s why we offer a range of English language courses to help you reach your education and career goals.
The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) is an Australian Government initiative that provides eligible migrants and refugees with up to 510 hours of subsidised or free English language training within the first five years of arrival. When you study this program at Swinburne, you will develop your skills in English speaking, listening, reading and writing and learn more about Australian culture and customs. These skills may give you access to a wider range of employment, training and community participation opportunities.
In addition to AMEP, we offer English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS), which prepares students for a career or for direct entry to Swinburne University of Technology. Elementary to advanced courses are available and range in duration from five to 50 weeks depending on competency.
The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.
