Students will be asked to complete a Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) test relevant to the course they have chosen to determine their numeracy and literacy level. This information helps us provide support in the areas where needed. These needs will be addressed through classroom learning and assessment activities over the duration of the course. Ultimate Institute of Australia may refer students to appropriate levels of English language programs at external providers depending on the specific needs/requirements of the student.
