Refund policy

Please choose carefully. Under Australian Consumer Law, after the course has commenced we do not provide a refund if you have a change in circumstances or make a wrong selection. If IML cancels a course then a full refund will be offered. Fees are not transferable to another student or to the next year.

Course types

Learners can start out with a short course or jump straight into a Level course as an entry point. The short courses flow logically into the Level courses.

Level courses

Year courses 46 hours (23 weekly sessions over 2 semesters: 12 sessions in Semester 1, 11 sessions in Semester 2, followed by an optional examination)
Accelerated courses 46 hours (23 sessions, twice a week, in a single semester, followed by an optional examination)
Semester 2 only courses 45 hours (18 longer weekly sessions held in Semester 2 only, followed by an optional examination)
Intensive courses (summer only) 46 hours (14 longer sessions, twice a week, held in the Summer Semester only, followed by an optional examination)
A courses 24 hours (12 weekly sessions in Semester 1)
B courses 22 hours (11 weekly sessions in Semester 2, followed by an optional examination). They are a continuation of A courses, suitable for those with some previous exposure to the language. The combination of A and B courses is the equivalent of a Year course.

IML also offers the following purpose-specific courses:

  • Conversation courses

The focus of these semester-based courses is on maintaining and extending conversational fluency. These are offered for a limited number of languages at Level 5 or higher. Semester 1 and Semester 2 only.

  • High School Enrichment courses

These are the only non-adult IML classes. 5 days in a single week in January or mid-year. For students undertaking the Senior phase of Secondary schooling (QCE and IB, Year 11 and 12).
