University English Entry Course (UEEC)

University English Entry Course (UEEC) has been developed specifically for students who have received conditional offers from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) but do not meet the UNSW English entry requirements. It provides an outstanding preparation experience for academic study at UNSW.

Successful students progress directly into their degree and do not need to retake an IELTS or similar test.

Depending on your level of English you may be placed into a 20 week course, a 15 week course or a 10 week course.  You can progress to UEEC from the other Academic English courses offered at the Institute of Languages or by providing a test score.

Recent surveys of students who completed the UEEC showed a very high level of satisfaction with the course.
