Melbourne, the Cultural Heart of Australia
With the many galleries, theatres, sporting events, arts festivals, nightlife and a thriving cafculture, it's no wonder that Melbourne has held the title of the world's most liveable city.
Melbourne has over three million residents, representing diverse cultural, religious and racial backgrounds. Melburnians are proud of their multicultural heritage and the variety of foods, arts, and entertainment that are available to them.
Situated on the Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne boasts some of the most outstanding architecture and parks in the world. Wide tree-lined boulevards stretch from one end of the city to the other, and Melbourne's trams make travel in the city simple.
English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students
There are more than 100 ELICOS (English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students) centres in Australia. All centres must be accredited and government-registered, and are monitored on an on-going basis to ensure maintenance of standards. Some centres are part of tertiary institutions or schools, and others are private colleges, but all must fulfil the standards set for accreditation.
The accreditation of English language centres is comprehensive. Centres must prove to the National ELICOS Accreditation Scheme (NEAS) that they have an appropriate management, administration and welfare infrastructure, qualified teaching staff, suitable premises, facilities and resources, and appropriate curricula and syllabi.
