International Student pathways to improve English proficiency – Vic

I didn’t get the IELTS score that I need to gain direct entry into an Australian university, so I am going to consider some alternatives. When this happens most domestic students either do a vocational course or complete a recognised award certificate course (certificate 1 – certificate IV) or an associate diploma at a TAFE college, before reapplying to university. Also, most universities have a pathway program where you can improve your English score on campus like a regular student, so this is another option that is worth investigating. The best part here is that, most universities will give you credit for the studies that you have undertaken and you will not have to do all of the foundation programs.

This option is also open for international students as well. So I am going to apply for the Australian college system, and upon successful completion I will apply for direct entry to university again. A system established to improve your skills before going to university. An alternative is to apply to one of approximately 5000 recognised institutions that offer short courses in Australia using a study visa.

But study options don’t stop here. There are a large number of Government approved courses that students can do as alternatives to full university degrees. Some are award course and some are non award. Search the institution to see what they can provide. There is a list below. If you choose to study by using one of the course providers below, make sure that the course you choose is recognised and is related to the course that you want to study at university.

The University of Melbourne

One of the pathway options that many students use is to study a course at an Australian government approved institution prior to applying to the university of Melbourne. Two such institutions for the University of Melbourne are Hawthorn and Trinity College. For students it is easy to know each other because the teacher will put you into groups and students also have a lot of writing that they need to do as a team. This is the perfect way to both improve writing and to make friends, but it is a little stressful and there is a lot of h.w. every day.

Trinity college – Established in 1872 as the first college of the University of Melbourne, Trinity College is a vibrant, diverse community, inspiring and enabling students of exceptional promise from Australia and around the world. Our divisions include the Pathways School, Residential College and Theological School. Trinity College is committed to the safety of all students, including those from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Victoria University

VU has a program called block teaching. This essentially where students get taught one subject at a time over a shortened term in the foundation year. It claims that this method increases the chances of passing the courses as students only have to focus on one thing at a time. This is a plus. To apply to this university you can register on their site or go through one of their overseas agents.
