11If I’m enrolled in the morning cohort, can I change it to afternoon or evening cohort later?
Yes, you can. Each student has one opportunity to change to another cohort (class) at the same level after their course has started, subjected to the availability of other cohorts (classes).
12Can I change my course after I start, if I feel that’s not the right level for me?
Yes, you can. Although we will try to offer you the most suitable course to start with upon your entry placement test, you can still make the change during the course. Talk to your teacher or other staff at AIL, and we will organize an assessment for you and make the change to meet your need.
13How do I transfer to another education provider?
Before transferring courses or providers, we strongly advise you to speak with an Immigration lawyer. Immigration laws change constantly and it is important to get up to date and correct advice at all times. If you have not completed six months of your principal course (the main course of study you are undertaking) and you want to change your education provider, the ESOS National Code explains the circumstances in which this will be possible. Unless special circumstances apply, you usually need to have permission from your existing education provider to transfer to another education provider. Please click here for more information.

Yes! Follow us on Facebook to keep you updated with any coming activities. (Due to COVID-19 pandemic, we have put extra precision when organize any social activities.)
