RMIT responds to new demands for “fast track” English

Tuesday, February 14, 2012 - 10:30

RMIT International University Vietnam is moving to offer a wider range of choices for people learning English, to prepare for higher education studies at university.

This week it has launched an IELTS English short course in response to growing demand for ‘fast track’ courses based on the IELTS testing system.

The new IELTS offering adds to a range of other programs already offered through RMIT Vietnam including English for Business and English for University.

“In response to what more Vietnamese people are seeking these days, we are aiming to provide the chance for them to engage in a language program at any point in their career, to help them get into university – or even return to university in some cases,” Rod Gillett, Director of English Language Programs for RMIT Vietnam, said today.

“With the pace of modern life getting faster, and more people making changes to their careers in the course of their working lives, we’re seeking to give people a wider range of choice, more flexibility – and in some cases the chance to move things along more quickly.”

Mr Gillett said RMIT’s curriculum unit has strong expertise in IELTS, with many ofits staff having previously been either IELTS examiners or developers of IELTS study programs: “Our major focus is on individual attention. We provide students with individual guidance and extra tuition to ensure they are fully prepared for the IELTS test.”

Mr Gillett said RMIT’s English for IELTS provides more than preparation for the test - each student is assessed on their language strengths and their course is tailored to focus on individual areas of concern. Students are also provided with individual support and attention to ensure that they are equipped with the skills and strategies to be successful.

IELTS Preparation will be offered at RMIT’s Pham Ngoc Thach campus in District 3, Ho Chi Minh City, with the first course commencing on 20 February.
