Featured Courses


The UWA Centre for English Language Teaching offers two ways, or pathways, to improve English language proficiency to the level required by the University for entry into its undergraduate and postgraduate studies. It is possible to package an application, that is, apply for more than one course at a time. UWA CELT can package a language course with an undergraduate degree, a master's degree (coursework, professional and research) as well as a research doctorate (PhD).


General English classes are for learners from beginners to advanced levels. General English is a pathway to all other English language programs at UWA.


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.
