Quality courses at ICTE-UQ

All our full-time English courses are taught by our highly-qualified and experienced teachers using world-class facilities. Learning is supported in and out of class with the latest learning resources from the best publishers - Cambridge, Pearson and MacMillan. Our courses are relevant, engaging and continually improved based on student feedback.  

From day one you will learn by communicating with your teacher and with other students in a pair and small group work. Classes are based on a variety of topics and use a mix of course materials, including books, video, audio and digital content. 

Through our courses, you will:

  • gain confidence in using English
  • speak more easily, clearly and accurately
  • understand video without captions
  • read a text without translation
  • write with clarity for a purpose and audience
  • extend your grammar and vocabulary.

You will have the opportunity to make friends in class, enjoy activities outside of class, and get better at English together every day.
