The UWA Centre for English Language Teaching (UWA CELT) reflects the tradition of the University by providing high quality English language teaching in a friendly and supportive environment. All our teachers have degrees and specialist qualifications in English language teaching. Our approach to teaching and learning gives students many opportunities to practise using English and to learn about life in Australia through tasks, activities and projects.

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 programs.

The most common pathway is via CELT’s Academic English and Study Skills Bridging Course, (Bridging Course) which has direct entry into tertiary studies at the University. This course is best for students who meet the Bridging Course’s entry standards and who can enrol for 10 or 20 weeks of intensive study.

The other route to tertiary studies at the University is through English for Academic Purposes in combination with an IELTS or TOEFL examination. This pathway is for students who do not qualify for the Bridging Course or for students who only need to study for five, not 20 or even 10 weeks.
