LSI schools in Australia and New Zealand give you the training and support you need to get into the university of your choice.
New Zealand and Australian universities require the IELTS or TOEFL iBT exams as proof of English for admission. LSI’s IELTS and TOEFL iBT preparation courses help you achieve the level of English that you need to get on to the course you want. Our Academic English programme prepares you not only for exams, but also to thrive in the academic and social environment of an English-speaking university in Australia or New Zealand.
Students who stay with us for 12 weeks or more receive free university counselling in the school from one of our professional advisors. We test your English on an ongoing basis so we can track your progress and plan out your pathway to the university you want, discussing options, which programme is right for you, and even help you with the paperwork for your university application (Auckland).
Academic English combines general English with a focus on key academic skills and exam English. The programme includes regular, focussed grammar and vocabulary reviews, which allows students to target their individual language needs while developing their academic reading and writing skills. This is all supported by specialised, targeted, online resources through our online learning system, E-LSI.
The IELTS test is internationally recognised in the English speaking world, highly regarded by companies and a requirement for enrolment at colleges and universities in many English speaking countries except in Canada and the USA. We offer preparation courses for this examination as part of an LSI Intensive 30 course.
