Academic English Pathways

The University of Adelaide offers two packaged Academic English Pathways for students that have not met the minimum English language entry requirements of their award program. For English Language Requirements for your program, please refer to the Degree Finder.

Academic English - PEP Pathway

This is a direct entry pathway into further studies at the University of Adelaide. The length of your program depends on your English proficiency test score.  The University of Adelaide accepts IELTS, TOEFL Internet Based (TOEFL iBT), TOEFL Paper-Based, Pearson Test of English (Academic) and Certificate of Advanced English (CAE). If you successfully complete the Pre Enrolment English Program (PEP) you do not need to sit another English test before you enter your University program.

Academic English - GEAP Pathway

This is a packaged program involving a mixture of General English for Academic Purposes (GEAP) and Pre Enrolment English Program (PEP) classes. The length of your program depends on your English proficiency test score.  The University of Adelaide accepts IELTS, TOEFL Internet Based (TOEFL iBT), TOEFL Paper-Based, Pearson Test of English (Academic) and Certificate of Advanced English (CAE). Another English Language test (IELTS, TOEFL iBT, TOEFL Paper-Based, Pearson or CAE) is required during the course, either to allow transfer to PEP classes or to give direct entry to your award program.
