Group Study Tours

ELS Universal English College is one of the largest providers of group study tours and short-term holiday programs in Australia.

We can design a high-quality program to suit the individual needs of your group. Programs can be on or off campus and generally include English language classes and cultural and recreational activities. Lessons are especially designed for short-term educational visits with class sizes of 10-15 students.

The lessons are interesting and fun, and encourage you to speak in English as much as possible. They are connected closely with the afternoon activities so you can apply what you learn in class to real life situations.

You have the option to stay with our warm and friendly Australian homestay hosts, or we can arrange other accommodation options suitable for groups of younger learners. A typical study tour includes:

  • Orientation
  • English language classes
  • Study materials
  • Afternoon activities
  • A welcome lunch
  • A map of Sydney
  • 2 full-day tours
  • A college branded gift
  • A certificate of completion
  • Accommodation with an Australian homestay family

As the college is located right in the centre of the city of Sydney, it is the ideal location for study tour students as they can simply walk to many of Sydney’s attractions.
