At ICTE-UQ

Sir Llew Edwards Building at UQ Face-to-face courses

If you have never taken an IELTS test or your score is below 5, we recommend you take our General English course.  

If you already have an IELTS score of 5 overall, and are seeking to get a higher score, we recommend our English for Academic Purposes course.  If you have an IELTS score of 5 or recognised equivalent, and do not want to do any further IELTS testing, you may be able to apply for direct entry to a UQ degree program.

If you are not wanting to study full-time, try our Practice English Classes.  These classes are run by our trainee English teachers and are cheap and casual.

Masterclasses

If you are already advanced in your preparation and aiming for IELTS band 7, you are welcome to attend our free IELTS Masterclass.  These are held each month here at ICTE-UQ St Lucia.

 Teacher's Tip

We think the best way to prepare for the IELTS test is to use your English skills every day.

Use English resources online and in your local library, and join social clubs that require you to use your English skills to communicate.
