Griffith English Language Institute (GELI)Since 1990, GELI has welcomed students from more than 50 nationalities to study high quality full-time English language courses. Every five weeks we welcome a new ELICOS student cohort, and over 1000 students commence study with us annually.
We are located on three of Griffith University's five campuses and our English programs and test centres have almost 200 staff. Our students enjoy the advantage of studying at an English institute backed by the reputation of Griffith University, ranked in the world’s top 400 universities on three major rankings.*
Over 80% of GELI graduates go on to undertake tertiary education at Griffith University, compared with the Australia wide average which has only 41% of English language program graduates moving into other education sectors.
GELI is committed to the provision of exceptional teaching, and on-going student development and support with:
- Best teachers in the field: All teachers hold a qualification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, many at postgraduate level, and all have experience in teaching English to students from multi-cultural backgrounds.

- Student support services to help students in all areas of their GELI experience
- Access to the full range of Griffith University’s services and facilities including: libraries, computer labs, sporting facilities, health and welfare services.
