We will grow our international student experience through the introduction of English Plus.
The program draws on the teaching models of international markets, including Japan, Thailand and Brazil, and will offer dedicated English language training.
Classes are a mix of workshops and hands-on learning and will run Monday to Thursday at the City campus. Every fifth Friday, learners will have the chance to complete vocational study opportunities, designed to offer students a future pathway into further study with Holmesglen.
"We’re offering some extras to the program, that’s the Plus… the Plus is English Monday to Thursday, and every fifth Friday, you have the opportunity to be engaged in Holmesglen programs. We’re looking at offering barista courses, coffee making, IT and gaming, and we also have the opportunity to look at fashion design. It’s that diversity of programs that we plan to offer to your students,” said Holmesglen’s Head of Language Centre, Adam Kilburn.
