Course details


While AEC cannot guarantee acceptance to New Zealand universities, we do have established pathways to other tertiary institutions and high schools. Your IELTS certificate shows that you have successfully completed the IELTS preparation strand. We have a highly experienced IELTS team with an excellent pass rate and student feedback, and as preparation for an IELTS test is a time consuming practice, and different universities require different band scores, we are continually developing our system to monitor the student’s progress. Students can book their own IELTS tests at MIT; however, we recommend booking through us, as we can match the test date with the start and end of our course. In this way students will get the full benefit of the courses we offer. Every university will have their own requirements for the different Diploma and Degree programmes they offer. This entry requirement includes IELTS, but they will also include the following: Previous level of education in the student’s home country, Length of study time in New Zealand, Other areas of study at preparation level completed in English in New Zealand, Suitability for the course as assessed during an interview. While AEC cannot guarantee acceptance to New Zealand universities, we do have other tertiary institutions. Before taking an IELTS exam, the student needs a basic knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary. This includes classes from Beginner to Intermediate level. Without these foundational studies students cannot attain the higher scores they require. Our Academic Intermediate/IELTS 1 class is specifically designed to provide the additional vocabulary needed for academic writing and listening with a band score of 5.5. Upper Intermediate General English is highly recommended for IETLS 2 where a band score of 6 or 7 is needed. It is important to remember that IELTS classes are designed to teach IELTS skills and vocabulary, not English grammar. A sound all-round English ability is required when entering New Zealand universities, not just the ability to pass an IELTS exam. University level, students will need to: Easily understand their lecturer, Read and understand academic material, Write and speak fluently. Being patient and realistic will be most beneficial in the long run. The class teachers can best assess the readiness of the students to move up to the next level. They will also be able to advise students on the correct path to attain their desired goal.
