Griffith English Language Institute
The Griffith English Language Institute (GELI) is accredited to offer ELICOS and Cambridge First Certificate and Advanced programs at both its Brisbane and Gold Coast centers. On completing the ELICOS program, students can sit for the International Second Language Proficiency Rating (ISLPR) test. Some Austral-ian universities and colleges, including Griffith, will accept ISLPR scores as evidence that a student’s English language proficiency is adequate for university entrance. IELTS tests are also available in Brisbane.
