English language pathways

UWA CELT offers two ways, or pathways to improve English language to the proficiency level required by the University for entry into its undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs

Class in a UWA CELT Computer lab

English for Academic Purposes classes are for learners from upper-intermediate to advanced levels. Like General English courses, English for Academic Purposes classes are the path to all other English language programs at UWA.

English for Academic Purposes

If your language ability is between the upper-intermediate to advanced level and if you want to develop your English language ability in preparation for tertiary studies in an English speaking country, then we recommend you consider enrolling in English for Academic Purposes. In each five-week module you will develop your skills to:

  • take notes during talks and lectures
  • give and take part in seminars and presentations
  • read and understand academic articles
  • write academic texts clearly and accurately
  • conduct library and internet research effectively
  • use information technology to support your learning, and
  • learn about how to adapt to the academic culture of an Australian university
