The students start with an intensive English learning program aiming to improve their listening, reading, speaking and writing skills, as well as their grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary. Students then move on to the Academic English program during which they familiarize themselves with the requirements of the Australian higher education system. UEC holds partnerships with over 40 different universities. Students validating their Academic English program are guaranteed a place at university without having to sit the IELTS examination. This program lasts a minimum of eight weeks and costs 3280 AUD.

Life and studies in Sydney

In terms of accommodation, UEC takes the well-being of its students very seriously. As soon as they arrive, students get to meet the accommodation officer who will have chosen a host family for them. The officer meets with students every month to ensure that all is going well in their host family. Students can also opt for a room in one of the partnering student halls. A homestay usually costs 237 AUD per week while student halls are around 287 AUD per week.
