Offering courses in English for Academic Preparation (EAP) and General English, the Intensive English Language Institute (IELI) provides high quality English language training to help students improve all aspects of their English language skills.

The EAP course is designed to help students reach the level of English needed for further study at an Australian university and also teaches students specific features of academic English, including essay structure, paraphrasing, referencing, note-taking, research skills, presentation language, and academic vocabulary.

Completion of IELI’s EAP course is accepted as meeting the English language requirements at many prestigious universities and higher education providers, including Flinders University, Torrens University, the University of South Australia, Carnegie Mellon University Adelaide, ICHM, and QTHC.

IELI’s General English course is ideal for students who want to study English for travel, work, or just for the fun of learning a language. As well as learning English, students learn about Australian culture, including workplace culture. The General English course can also be packaged with an EAP course for students who need to improve their overall English level before preparing for academic studies.

Both the EAP and General English courses are offered at our two campuses: IELI on the campus of Flinders University and IELI City Campus.

As well as helping students to improve their language skills, IELI also helps students to be part of both the local community. To help students get the most out of their learning experience, IELI runs a social activities program every weekend (Friday and/or Saturday), arranges volunteering opportunities for students, and assists students seeking part-time employment.
