English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students

Welcome to Australia's English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS).

Studying ELICOS in an Australian English school means participating in a sector of Australian education that has been developed to allow speakers of English as a second language (ESL) to either develop their English or to continue on to academic studies.

In most countries there is no control over ESL teaching. In Australia the government regulates the English teaching industry to make sure that all international students receive a high quality of instruction.
