Pre-Enrolment English Program (PEP) - Entry Criteria and Number of Weeks

Pre-Enrolment English Program (PEP) - Entry Criteria and Number of Weeks

* Students in PEP Extended 35 week and 30 week courses will first participate in General English for Academic Purposes (GEAP) classes until the 25 week PEP intake and then take classes with other PEP students only. Commencing in the GEAP allows students to develop the fundamental linguistic building blocks of grammar and vocabulary for academic level study, before progressing to classes specifically for students with award program offers.

^ The University's preferred accredited English language tests are:

  • IELTS (International English Language Testing System) - Academic Test
  • TOEFL - internet based and paper based
  • Pearson Test of English - Academic
  • CAE (Cambridge English: Advanced).

However, the University may accept other evidence of proficiency in English in individual cases.

The majority of language tests and qualifications that meet the University's minimum English requirements have a validity of two years preceding the date of application.
