The College has programs to support our overseas students' learning of English.

  •  timetabled classes at all year levels
  • Small group tuition for all students identified as requiring EAL assistance
  • extra individual support for some EAL students
  • Mainstream English classes for advanced EAL students

Students who need even more English tuition choose to attend English Language Centres for 10 to 20 weeks before they come to Copperfield College.
