If a students’ English language proficiency level does not meet the entry requirements, IES College may request that the student undertake further English language studies, at their own cost, in order to meet the English language course requirements prior to commencement of Year 11. English language proficiency will be reassessed at the conclusion of the course to ensure the student has met the required language proficiency level.

IES College provides students with English language support through a collaborative approach by academic subject teachers and English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EALD) teachers as required, to support the student’s needs in the context of an academically challenging environment.

Applicants who are unable to demonstrate English language proficiency based on their school reports are required to submit AEAS Year 10-12 test results with their application. Our goal is for students to thrive and succeed, both socially and academically and the AEAS test results provide an indicator of how students will fit into the IES College student community.

Please refer to AEAS website for further information on AEAS test and the required fees. The minimum level required for entry into year 11 at IES College is an AEAS score of 70 with Stanine 6 across the five skill areas on the AEAS test.
