English Support

Starting out to study in a foreign country could be an exciting prospect. However, it's easy to overlook some of the changes like different accent, slang etc. when comparing the academic environment in Australia with that of your home country. English is a second language for most of the students coming from overseas and we don’t want our students to suffer in academic area. For this reason, JTI offers FREE English support classes once in a week.

Anyone who is facing language barrier can attend these classes to practice and have better hold over their English language.
