Pathways & Further Studies

Packages

Students at Health Careers Language Academy can choose to go into further studies upon completion of their English course. Our English courses can be packaged with Vocational and Higher Education courses. As a part of our standard admissions processes, students are given individual academic advice based on their English level. The recommended number of weeks of English study required is determined by the current English level of the student, and the English level they need to attain for entry into and successful participation in further studies.
