    Class Placement & Course Progress

    The average language learner requires ten weeks of intensive study at any level – with the exception of the intermediate level – to fully learn the language at that level. At the intermediate level, the average language learner needs between 15 and 20 weeks.

    UWA CELT’s curriculum uses this standard guide when designing the course content for each five-week term, including General English classes.

    Thus, a full General English course is taught over ten weeks for all levels except for the intermediate level, which has a twenty-week curriculum. If you regularly take an active part in classes, complete all course tasks, assignments and tests and demonstrate that your language skills have developed to a satisfactory level, you will be promoted to the next level.

    We recognise that each student is an individual and that some may learn English faster or more slowly than the average language learner. This is not a problem and will be addressed on an individual basis.

    We use the results of your placement test and information from your application form to place you in the best class for your level of English language ability and personal goals. If you believe you should be in a different level or class, talk to your teacher first.

    However, we advise you to try the class for at least three days to check whether you should be in another class. If you still want to change your class, make an appointment to discuss this with the ELICOS Programs Coordinator.

    Please note that if for any reason you need to change class in week 1, you will need to purchase a new textbook or swap with another student. For this reason, we advise you not to write in your textbook until you are sure of your level.

    Every term your teachers will assess the
    progress you make in your course studies. Teachers will assess your English language ability through different tasks, which includes your performance in:

    • formal and informal class tests
    • homework and independent learning tasks
    • interviews and presentations
    • research assignments
    • completion of on-line language tasks or other
    • computer-based tasks, and participation in class and group activities

    How to demonstrate your
    success in developing your language skills

    If you have studied at a level for at least ten weeks, reach a 70% average across all skills with no skill below 60%.

    If you have studied at any level for five weeks and wish to be promoted, minimum average of 70% across all skills is required, of which two are at 80% or above and no skill below 60%; or you need to have 75% overall with no skill below 70%.

    You must attend no less than 80% of your classes of your enrolment (identified on your CoE). Your teachers will check your attendance for every session, which is twice daily Monday to Fridays. Attendance records will be entered weekly into the UWA CELT Student Management system.

    If you are 15 or more minutes late for a class, you will be marked absent for that session. If you are absent for more than three consecutive days, the ELICOS Programs or Bridging Course Coordinator will contact you.

    If you cannot be contacted at that time we will initiate the critical incident process. If you are sick, you must provide a medical certificate to your teacher (if you need assistance, Reception can help you to make an appointment with a doctor).

    Attendance below 90%
    Your teacher will give you a verbal caution outlining the consequences if you continue to not attend classes.

    Attendance below 85%
    If you are at risk of going below 80% the ELICOS Programs or Bridging Course Coordinator will meet with you to talk about the reasons for your absence. They will also remind you that maintaining satisfactory attendance is a student visa requirement, and if you fall below 80%, you may be reported, and your attendance may be cancelled by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).

    Attendance below 80%
    The Director of Studies will send you a letter via email telling you that your attendance is now at a level where we may report you to the DIBP for not achieving satisfactory attendance. At this point you have an option to immediately provide information such as medical certificates which may allow UWA CELT to consider not reporting yet on compassionate grounds, provided your attendance is above 70%. If the information you provide does not support compelling or compassionate reasons for your absences OR you fail to provide any information we will then advise you of our intention to report you to the DIBP for not achieving satisfactory attendance.

    At this point you will have 20 working days to formally appeal this decision following the steps in UWA CELT’s Problem Solving and Grievance Procedures. The final appeal decision will be given to you in writing via email by the UWA CELT Director. If your appeal is not successful you will be reported to DIBP immediately. If your appeal is successful, you must attend all classes thereafter.

    (If at any stage during this process you reach an attendance level below 70, you will be reported to DIBP immediately).

    Academic Conduct at UWA

    UWA CELT and the wider University strongly supports teaching and learning that promotes ethical scholarship and academic literacy. At UWA CELT we understand that Australia’s academic conventions may differ from your own, so we provide you with the knowledge, skills and strategies to avoid academic misconduct.

    Academic misconduct includes cheating or attempting to cheat through:

    • Colluding with another student to present work that is not your own
    • Collaborating inappropriately with someone to submit work that is not
      your own
    • Plagiarizing by copying and presenting information as original work
    • Misrepresenting or fabricating data or other information
    • Sourcing and using electronic information without acknowledging the original text
    • Breaching rules for the conduct of examinations so that the purpose of assessment is compromised.
     

    Academic Policy Guidelines

    Penalities for Academic Misconduct

    Because it is important that your assessment results show your real ability in English, if academic misconduct occurs you will be penalised depending on the seriousness of the case. Penalties range from resubmitting work, losing marks on assignments, receiving 0% for a test or failing a language skill (e.g. reading).

    To avoid academic misconduct, please make sure your work is your own and if you are not sure about the academic rules in Australia, ask your teacher for help.

    Your Student Visa

    Your visa allows you to enter and remain in Australia until its expiry date. Please be aware of this expiry date. If your visa expires while you are still in Australia, you become an illegal entrant and could be deported. This means you would not be allowed to return to Australia for three years.

    • If you are on a student visa, you must study full-time. This means that you must be enrolled in a full-time course, come to class on time, take part in class activities and complete all the assignments. If you are more than 15 minutes late to class you will be marked as absent for that session. The Australian government has strict regulations about attendance and progress of students with a student visa. The University must inform the Department of Immigration about any student whose attendance is less than 80%.
    • If you are on a visitor (tourist) visa, you can study anywhere in Australia for up to 12 weeks only, either full-time or part-time.
    • If you are on a working holiday visa, you can study anywhere in Australia for up to 17 weeks only, either full-time or part-time.
    • If you are sick or unable to come to the University, please phone UWA CELT reception on 6488 3539 to let us know.
      Tell Reception your name, class and name of your main teacher. If you are sick for more than three consecutive days, you
      will need to see a doctor and ask for a medical certificate.

    Visa Information

    Extending Your Student Visa

    If you wish to extend your stay in Australia to complete your current course or to enrol in a new course, you must apply for a new visa before the expiry of your current student visa.

    (Note: You may not be granted a new visa if
    you hold a student visa with a “No further stay” condition.)

    To extend your student visa:

    • Enrol in a course; pay the tuition fees and Overseas Student Health Cover.
    • Make sure you have an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) from
      the college or university at which you will be studying.
    • Ask UWA CELT Reception for a Certificate of Attendance and a current statement about your academic achievement to date.
    • Apply for an extension or a new student visa online from the Department of Home Affairs website at:

    Submitting Your Visa Extention

    Get Around Safely

    Traffic in Australia drives on the left hand side of the road, so remember to
    look both ways when crossing the street.

    Polygon
     

    Do Not Accept Lifts From Strangers

    It is important that you never accept a lift in the car of a stranger. Only accept a car ride from people that you know and trust.

    Polygon

    Walk Safely

    • Walk on the left hand side of the footpath.
    • Use zebra crossings to cross busy roads e.g. Stirling Highway.
    • Look RIGHT, then LEFT when crossing the road.
    • Don’t carry a lot of cash.
    • At night, don’t walk alone and don’t walk in dark places.
    • Look around you before using an ATM and cover your hand so your PIN can’t be seen by someone else.
    Group

    Cycle Safely

    Australian law says you must:

    • Wear a helmet when you are riding a bicycle or motorcycle.
    • Ride on the road, not on the footpath.
    • Ride on the same side of the road as the traffic, the left hand side.
    • Wear light coloured clothes and use a head and a tail light at night.
    • Lock your bicycle to a fence or post with a strong, secure chain.
    Group
     

    Swim Safely

    • When you are at the beach always swim between the red and yellow flags. There are sometimes strong currents that may pull you away from shore. Red and yellow flags show that a lifeguard is on duty.
    • Never swim on your own.
    • Don’t swim if you have been drinking alcohol or taking drugs.
    • If you are in trouble in the water, wave your arms and shout for help.

    If you are visiting Perth during summer, you will more than likely be enjoying our outdoor lifestyle and participating in many activities outside. It is important to make sure you have appropriate clothing. In Australia we have a slogan to ensure we protect ourselves when out in the sun, “Slip on a shirt! Slop on some sunscreen! Slap on a hat!”

    Essential items for your stay are:

    • A hat or cap; wide-brimmed is best
    • T-shirts or lightweight long-sleeved shirts
    • Shorts
    • Bathers
    • Sunglasses
    • Sunscreen – preferably one purchased in Australia. Because of our strong and clear sunlight we have very high standards for sunscreens and UV protection.

    Party Safely

    • When you are going out, tell someone where you are going.
    • It is illegal to have, take or sell drugs such as marijuana, E (ecstasy), cocaine, speed, ice or LSD. There are serious punishments including fines, gaol and deportation from Australia.
    • Beware of drink spiking, especially if you are a woman. DO NOT leave your drink unattended. If you think someone might have put something into your drink, do not drink it.
    • If you are out drinking with your friends and you are driving, choose one person who will NOT DRINK and who will be the designated driver.
    • Bar staff must not serve alcohol to people under 18 years of age. You will need to show identification to prove you are the legal age. Rather than taking your passport, you should apply for a Proof of Age card.
    • In Australia, it’s illegal to smoke indoors in public buildings including bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants.
    • Enjoy yourself, but try to be aware of yourself and others around you.

    Date Safely

    When you have a relationship with someone from another country or culture, things can be quite different.

    • Rules of personal contact can be different. Shaking hands is normal in most cultures. Kissing and embracing are not appropriate for people you don’t know well. In Australia, men do not usually make affectionate physical contact with each other in public.
    • Be sensitive to whether someone wants to have a relationship with you. In Australia, ‘No’ means ‘No’ whether it is about a relationship or sex.
    • If you are being bullied to have a relationship or sex, tell a friend, your teacher, or talk to our Student Adviser. If you are sexually assaulted go to the police. Australian police are helpful. Our Student Advisor is very helpful and sympathetic and will help you talk to the police.
    • Australian law does not allow discrimination against gays and lesbians,
      but some people may still be aggressive. Be careful if you are not in a
      gay-friendly environment.

    If you are a visitor to Western Australia with a driver’s licence issued by your home state or country, you do not have to get a Western Australian driver’s licence. You can drive legally, using your interstate or international licence or permit, provided that it is valid.

    You must carry your licence or permit with you whilst driving. If your overseas driver’s licence or permit is not written in English, you should carry an approved English translation of your licence with you.

    Drive Safe

    Get a copy of “Drive Safe” from the Student Adviser. This booklet gives advice about driving safely on Australian roads, especially on country trips. In particular, you should know:

    • The distance between country towns can be very long, so you should make sure your car is reliable.
    • In some country areas there is no reception for mobile (cell) phones.
    • We recommend having RAC (Royal Automobile Club) breakdown service insurance for country areas. Although this costs more than city-only insurance you will have the security of the RAC rescue service.
    • Be very careful driving at dawn and dusk in the
      country. It can be difficult to see the animals, especially kangaroos, feeding near roads at these times.
    • Remember that long straight country road can
      terminate suddenly in a bend.
    • Plan to stop at least every two hours for a rest, to help you stay alert.
    • Drive within the speed limit, especially on long straight country roads when it is very easy to drive too fast.
    • Be careful when driving outside the metropolitan area. Many roads are dirt roads, which require different driving skills. In addition, many country roads are lined with gravel, making it difficult to control a car if you veer off the bitumen road.

    Further Information

    If you have any questions about driving, please see the Student Adviser.

    Buying a Car

    You can easily buy cheap second-hand cars in Perth. If you buy a car, think about what kind of insurance you would like.

    Third Party Insurance is included in your registration fee. This covers you if there is an accident where other people are injured. Consider buying Third Party Property Insurance, which covers you if you have an accident, and some property is damaged, such as another car.

    Otherwise, Comprehensive Insurance covers you and other parties. Consider joining the RAC Breakdown Service. The RAC provides free Road Service to its members and will get your car running again or tow it to a mechanic.

    Hiring a Car

    If you wish to hire a car, make sure you understand the insurance policy and the cost if the car is damaged. This can amount to many thousands of dollars.
