Intensive English Program

Seymour College provides a personalised integration and introduction to education in Australia. This includes Intensive English where required and at the individual level of a student. The English needs of students are assessed using the AEAS and Seymour based testing, allowing us to customise a program to meet individual language acquisition needs. Intensive English tuition is provided on a daily basis. Students work from their assessed level, extending their understanding of grammar, spelling, structures and general vocabulary. International students attend classes which are less language rich as soon as possible, to ensure academic challenge, language development and relationship building.

Transition and Ongoing Support

Seymour College offers a phased transition process for International students, incorporating pastoral care, English language tuition and cross-curricular support. Each student may have different language requirements and an individualised program will be developed. Seymour College is able to assist students with significant language support requirements. Once students begin attending mainstream subjects they receive ongoing support in all subject areas and are given specialised vocabulary sessions for subjects where the understanding of terminology is critical.

At the College we have an International Student Coordinator, who offers the students on-going pastoral care and academic support as well as the delivery of English language programs tailored to each student. This role works alongside a variety of subject teachers and support staff who also monitor our new students, to ensure they can quickly become used to life at Seymour College.
