Help with English language skills

Some international students may need specialised tuition to meet the University’s minimum English language requirements. The University of Western Australia offers a choice of English language programs through the Centre for English Language Teaching (CELT) to prepare international students for tertiary academic study.



Centre for English Language Teaching

The Centre for English Language Teaching (CELT) is an integral part of the University and offers accredited ELICOS programs in General English, Business English and English for Academic Purposes, as well as preparation for internationally recognised examinations such as well as the IELTS and TOEFL. The Centre is able to structure specific preparation programs leading to postgraduate studies.

All CELT teachers have degrees and specialist qualifications in English language teaching. The Centre takes a communicative approach to teaching and gives students many opportunities to practise language and learn about life in Australia through tasks, activities and projects.

The Centre is also a testing centre for the IELTS, TOEIC and TOEFL iBT.

Academic English and Study Skills Bridging Course
The Academic English and Study Skills Course has been designed for international students who wish to study at UWA but do not have the University’s required level of English proficiency. The course is also suitable for students with unconditional entry into UWA who would like to further develop their language ability and confidence before commencing their tertiary studies.

The Bridging Course helps students to:



  • Improve English language skills to the level required by UWA;

  • Learn about the organisation and language of various types of academic texts;

  • Develop knowledge of the language of their chosen discipline;

  • Develop an understanding of Australian academic culture;

  • Develop a high level of analytical and reflective skills in an Australian academic context;

  • Develop strategies to attribute literacy sources appropriately; and

  • Develop the capacity to be an autonomous learner at an Australian university with the confidence to participate freely and appropriately in academic situations.

A ‘B’ pass (70%) in the Bridging course meets the University’s English language requirement for most undergraduate and postgraduate courses, however some postgraduate courses have a higher English language requirement.
