General English (Pre-intermediate level)
Never is it too late when we have a dream.
My dream was to learn English and I chose to study at Sydney College of English (SCE). This college has been the best option for me in Sydney. There is support and interest in my learning progress. The teachers prepare dynamic and interesting classes and we learn quickly and happily. The college helps with all my doubts and questions and I have contact with people of many nationalities. Also SCE found for me a marvellous Homestay Family.
I am 62 years old but at SCE I am a young student once again.
Cambridge Preparation (CAE)
When I was looking for a school to complete the CAE course I visited 5 or 6 colleges in the heart of Sydney. Based on my negative previous experience with another English college, I was determined to find a quality provider and after my first day at SCE all my doubts and
fears disappeared! I was impressed by the professionalism and passion of my CAE teachers.
The CAE course boosted my confidence and I was able to achieve my target score with ease.
I started studying at SCE in March 2013 and packaged 3 different courses. I began with CAE, a very helpful course that increased greatly my knowledge of advanced-level General and Business English. Then I moved into OET Test Preparation, an interesting course which allowed me to learn English for Nursing Purposes (ENP). The last course I studied was for obtaining the IELTSTM certificate, which together with OET helped me find a job in the UK as a scrub nurse. I really enjoyed studying at SCE because I found the staff extremely warm and friendly. The time spent at SCE has been incredible because I not only learnt a lot but also made plenty of friends from all around the world.
EHP & EAP
I studied English for Academic Purposes and English for Health Professionals at SCE. The EHP course has given me an opportunity to learn medical English before starting an actual nursing course in TAFE. I felt my knowledge of medical terms was improved during the course. Now I’m working as a registered nurse at Prince of Wales Hospital!
I started studying at SCE in April of 2017. SCE is an enjoyable place to study English for many reasons. The first reason are friends, here you can meet a lot of amazing people from different nationalities, you can learn about their culture and create beautiful relationships. Another reason is the teachers. They are very kind and the way that they teach, makes the classes comfortable and funny. Studying at SCE has helped me a lot because here I got the confidence to talk to others and I met people from different countries talking in English.
High School Preparation
Although I miss my HSP teachers and classmates so much, since moving to St Augustine’s in February 2016 I have never looked back! The HSP course prepared me so effectively for High School life, not only teaching me Academic English, essay-writing and presentation skills, but about the Australian High School system and environment. Without Colin, Olga and the HSP teachers, I would never have attained my Dux award last year.
We are sad to announce that due to the impact of COVID-19, Sydney College of English is no longer delivering classes. As of Monday 1st June 2020, all current students transferred to IH Sydney where they will continue in the same course of study. SCE staff are still available to assist with any queries until Friday 26th June 2020. Please do not hesitate to contact our team at email@example.com.
As a proud member of the ELICOS community in Sydney since 1987, SCE has been an influential place in the lives of the many staff and students who have been a part of the school over the years. As a place of education and growth, SCE strove to fulfil its mission: “to provide an environment in which students of any age are given the support to become capable, confident communicators who flourish and have successful lives as they continue to learn and develop their skills.” We have been touched by the heartfelt comments that we have received from past students and staff about their time at SCE and would like to acknowledge everyone who has contributed to the life of the college over the years. Quality, experience, success and personalised care have been at the heart of SCE and we are confident that these values will live on in the students and staff. We are proud of everything we have achieved and wish everyone who has been a part of this journey, the very best for the future.
