On 28 June we held our first IELTS & PTE Academic Networking Evening, where local immigration agents were invited to learn more about the tests and preparation courses which we offer. The event was a success with over 50 people in attendance. A big thanks to all the participants. See more photos from the event on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/uoaela
Please note that students taking Academic English or a Pathway (FCertEAP, EPUS, EPPS) course from Block 4 (starting 16th September) will need to have their own device, ie a laptop or tablet. If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to let us know at marketing@ela.auckland.ac.nz  
Under the new General English (GE) structure from 2019, students will no longer have the option of taking a holiday in the middle of their course. Any General English students who would like to take a maximum of 2 weeks holiday in 2018 can still do so, but they won’t be able to make up any missed weeks in 2019. If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to let us know at marketing@ela.auckland.ac.nz
