What documents do I need to enrol at ELC?

ELC’s General English course is open to all adult applicants. There are no specific requirements. The only document you need to fill in is our enrolment form. It is available online (link) or as a pdf. Other courses require a minimum level of English, so to enrol in those, you will need to take our level test.

Students

Where do ELC’s students come from?

ELC students are all international students, coming here to study English. In our day course, on an average day, you will find students from about 30 countries at school! Every student comes with an eagerness to meet people, learn about different cultures and make new friends, so this is a great chance for each of you to practice English every day.

Courses

Can I join several courses?

Many of students combine different courses throughout their studies with us and we highly encourage them to do so. Many start with a General English course and then move on to an Academic English or Business English course when they reach the required level. When you arrive at ELC you will have a speaking interview with our Director of Studies or one of our Senior teachers. They will assess your level and you will be able to discuss your interests, needs and future plans. From there on, we will be able to customise a study plan to help you reach your goals.

Payments

When do I need to pay?

Payment is usually required 8 weeks before you start your course. However, depending on the extra services you would like us to arrange for you (such as accommodation) your payment may be required earlier. In any case, your payment due date will be stated on your invoice and a confirmed place at ELC will be secured once all fees have been received as outlined on your invoice.

How can I pay?

ELC accepts payment via credit card and direct deposit. We also accept payment via Flywire. If you are already in Kuala Lumpur at the time of enrolment, you could also come to pay in cash.

First Day

What should I bring on my first day?

Please bring your passport, as well as stationery for your first classes (a notebook and pens).

At what time should I come on my first day?

You should come to school at 9:00 on your first day. Simply introduce yourself to our receptionist and we will guide you from there.

Accommodation

What if my chosen accommodation option is not available?

With all accommodation types and room types, you have a lot to choose from. However, some are very popular so when you compare all options and choose your favourite one, also tell us what your second preference is in case your preferred option is no longer available. This will save time in the process.

When should I book my accommodation?

It is up to you but the earlier you book, the more options will be available, so we recommend that you look through our range of options at the same time as you book your course and book both at once. In any case, if you would like ELC to arrange accommodation for you, you need to book minimum 4 weeks before you arrive.

Which accommodation option do you recommend?

ELC offers a number of apartment accommodation options of different standards but all are excellent value for money.

Visas

What are my visa options?

The majority of ELC students study on one of the following 2 visas: a visitor visa or a student visa. With a visitor visa, you can study with us for 2-12 weeks, either part-time or full-time at your convenience. You will not be allowed to work but will be able to combine study and travel in Malaysia. To qualify for a student visa, you need to enrol for a minimum of 16 weeks full-time. You can find all information you need on visas from EMGS (Education Malaysia Global Services) or via this link.
