Picture of University heroes


Here at CET we contribute to the broader University effort to support international students through the provision of preparatory English language courses. Each year, around 3000 international students study in our programs during their pathway to undergraduate and postgraduate studies and research.

We offer a comprehensive range of English language courses to help you achieve your academic or professional objectives.

All of our courses are taught by highly-qualified instructors who have extensive experience teaching English at universities both in Australia and internationally. They provide a friendly and caring learning environment that makes studying English in Sydney an enjoyable and stimulating educational experience.

We are also a test venue, so when you have completed your English course we can arrange for a test booking to suit your needs.

We are located on the main campus of the University of Sydney, and all classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual technology. You have access to the University’s wide range of student support services and facilities providing a rich international student experience from pre-arrival to post-graduation.

Education and protecting your rights

The Australian Government wants overseas students in Australia to have a safe, enjoyable and rewarding place to study. Australia’s laws promote quality education and consumer protection for overseas students. These laws are known as the ESOS framework and they include the Education Services for Overseas (ESOS) Act 2000 and the National Code 2007.
