Formed in the early 1980s, this is the national professional association for the ELICOS sector of international education (providers offering English Language Intensive Courses to Overseas Students.) English Australia was originally formed as the ELICOS Association and was incorporated in 1990.
Guarantee if a School goes Bankrupt
Membership in English Australia includes subscription to a Tuition Assurance Scheme (TAS) which guarantees placement of students into alternative courses if a provider is not able to offer the course they have paid for. English Australia protects students with any type of visa who are studying with an EA member college.
Complaints should first be addressed to the college (the course provider). If the student feels that their complaint has not been resolved, they can contact English Australia to look into the matter.
