About Us 

More than 25 years of history

The Macquarie University English Language Centre (ELC) was founded by the Australian Government 25 years ago, and it remains one of Australia’s leading English language centres today. More than 1,000 students graduate every year, and we are proud to see them go on to exciting and fulfilling studies and careers. We are located in the centre of Macquarie University's beautiful campus only 30 minutes by train from the city.

A wide range of programs

We offer a wide range of English language programs including General English, Academic English, Study Tours, TESOL Teacher Training, and professional English courses. We also provide discipline-specific preparation programs for future university students. You can choose to study in an English program specialised in Business, Accounting and Economics (BAE), Human Sciences, Arts and Science (HAS), or Education and Translating & Interpreting (ED/TIPP).

Your pathway to Macquarie University

Our courses are an ideal way to prepare for studies at Macquarie University as we teach university study skills as well as English. We believe this is one of the reasons ELC graduates achieve over 10 per cent better GPA in their first Session studies at Macquarie University compared to students entering from other pathways.

Thrive in a professional and friendly environment

Our team of highly experienced and dedicated teachers are leaders in the field with many having Masters and PhD qualifications in teaching. We look forward to having you with us, and seeing you develop your confidence as you improve your language and academic skills in our friendly and supportive environment right in the centre of Macquarie University’s beautiful campus.
