5902LAL English Language and Communication for Health
English Language and Communication for Health is only offered to students from a non-English speaking background (NESB). Students whose first language is English are not permitted to undertake this course. The purpose of the course is to introduce students to the language, knowledge and communication skills required for study and practice in their health disciplines, and to enable them to develop and practice English language skills relevant to the academic culture of Australian universities. The course therefore involves intensive English language practice and language immersion activities, with elements applied to contextualised, discipline specific settings.
† Domestic students whose first language is not English, and International students who enter with an IELTS (or equivalent) < 7.0 must undertake the English Language & Communication for Health course..
