Introduction to Academic Studies

Course summary

UOW College's Introduction to Academic Studies (IAS) course prepares international students for academic life and for living in Australia. It is designed to develop and refine a wide range of academic skills necessary for success in university study. The social aspects of beginning a new life in a foreign country are also a focus of classroom and excursion activities.

IAS allows students to develop skills in essay writing, reading academic journal articles, communication and interaction in the academic environment through oral presentations and discussions and research techniques.

Students who take the IAS course have already met university entry requirements and have been offered a place in either an undergraduate or postgraduate degree course. On completion of IAS, students will proceed to university.

This course involves 20 hours of tuition per week for 6 weeks.
