Individuals on a UIL study tour can investigate first hand opportunities for future education, employment and business opportunities available to them. Queensland offers a safe, clean and friendly environment for international visitors, that is more cost effective than the southern states in Australia.
UIL can develop customised courses for teachers from overseas in practical methods of how to teach communication English. Many international students already have a strong base of English grammar, spelling, reading and writing but are not as strong in oral communication in the English language. UIL focuses on the methodologies to enable international teachers to develop their students further in this direction.
To date UIL has had teaching groups from a range of countries including China, Korea and Japan come to Australia and take part in these very practical courses. The feedback regarding these courses has been exceptionally positive in allowing teachers to take very useful methods and exercises back to their own schools. Some of our teacher groups come as part of a student study tour group enabling them to spend part of their visit in their own teacher training sessions and the rest of their time with their study tour group enjoying various Australian activities. There are other teacher groups that come as an individual training group by themselves.
UIL creates the individual teacher training courses based on the required outcomes of the group, the current English level of the teachers and the period of time the group will be in Australia. These courses are conducted both at UIL campuses and our partner schools allowing the international teachers to observe first hand teaching in Australia.
UIL can offer a comprehensive range of services in the development and delivery of professional education programs. UIL has the ability and staff to customize and design specific courses for individual clients and groups.
