“I have been living in Melbourne for 1 year and four months and I really enjoy living here. I came to Australia to learn English because in my country I was working as a journalist for a newspaper, so, I think that it is very important to learn another language. I first studied General English at UiT in 2010 when I arrived here. Then I changed schools to try to talk to different people but I have come back to UiT and I have been studying IELTS and EAP. I am very glad to study here because my teachers and classmates are friendly and I feel pretty happy.”

Cintia from Brazil

“At this moment I’m studying English in Melbourne, Australia. My school is UiT. I feel very happy in my Elementary class because my teacher Louise is funny and she brings lollies (he, he, he…) I want to speak English more in class but I need more practice. Louise is a very good teacher and I feel confident when I speak English with her. My class is good. I feel relaxed and comfortable.” Maryeline from Colombia

Students Under 18 : Accommodation and Homestay UIT accepts students under 18 years of age in their English for High School course. This policy applies whether the accommodation is arranged through an agency or directly by the college. Even where an agency is engaged, it remains UIT’s responsibility to ensure that standards are upheld, that the accommodation remains suitable, and that other people living at the accommodation are suitable. Records of the inspection will be kept on file; homestay agencies are expected to provide such records. Even where inspections are carried out by third parties such as homestay agencies, UIT may institute its own inspections. All accommodation is inspected and the host family is interviewed to ascertain their suitability for looking after younger overseas students before accommodation is approved. This may be done by the homestay agency or by UIT

Monitoring of Welfare Arrangements Follow-up inspections and interviews for all accommodation will occur at least annually. Any complaints or negative comments from students about their accommodation should be reported to the Student Services officer and followed up. The Student Services officer or their delegate will have an informal chat with under 18 student at least every two months to check that their living arrangements have not changed and are still satisfactory

Changes to Accommodation Changes to accommodation must be approved in advance by the college, and must only involve accommodation that has been approved by the college. Such changes will be notified to DIAC through PRISMS. If a student moves out of their accommodation without the prior approval of the college, UIT is legally required to notify DIAC, and this may lead to cancellation of the visa. Students will be advised of this during orientation, but will also be advised that if problems occur in their approved accommodation, they should inform the college immediately, and the college will take whatever measures are necessary to ensure

It was then that I decided to set out to learn English at UiT.

UiT feels like home. The atmosphere is nice and there is a friendly relationship between teachers, students and administrative support staff. I’ve been at UiT for 4 months and I can see my progress. I’d like to say thanks to Yulia and Leonardo who have been my teachers. They motivate me every day to continue and encourage me when I make a mistake. With a smile they say: “Come on Antoinette you can…” Maybe we make a lot of mistakes along the way, however, nothing is perfect in life and the principal idea is to resolve them as a team. So, at UiT we’re a good team!”
