English as a second language

A range of support is available to help you brush up on your English throughout your time at FedUni.

English and Academic Preparation program (EAP)

EAP is an accredited pathway program for non-English speaking background international students who intend undertaking undergraduate or postgraduate studies at FedUni. EAP aims to enhance and develop students' English language skills. The Program will help you to successfully complete academic study in English-speaking learning environments.

EAP is suitable for students who do not meet the minimum English language entry requirements for FedUni degree programs.

English Language Support Program (ELSP)

Available for all first semester courses, and others on request, the ELSP helps you to understand the content and assessments of your course, lecture notes and academic culture in Australia. We advise all new students whose first language is not English to make use of this service. Please contact us to find out when sessions are running in your subject.
