Adelaide International School (AIS) is a division of Adelaide Institute of Business and Technology (AIBT) and in 2015 became registered as a provider of the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) for delivery to Australian domestic and international students both ‘onshore’ and ‘offshore’.
In 2016, AIS commenced three (3) major initiatives:
- Enrolment of international students for their inaugural ‘onshore’ bilingual SACE program, due to commence 2017, in its modern facility that is centrally located in the heart of the Adelaide Central Business District. This will bring together both local Australian domestic and international students to commence studying the SACE certificate together
- Develop relationships with local domestic private schools to access more subject selection for students
- Establish partnership arrangements with international schools to relocate cohorts of student to AIS for the delivery of English language development
AIS offers a modern facility in the heart of the Adelaide Central Business District (CBD) only minutes from Victoria Square and China Town at the Central Market. This location provides students with easy access to Adelaide's public transportation system which is free within the CBD.
For international students AIS boasts a high level of English language support throughout their enrolment through its English Language Intensive Courses for International Students (ELICOS) program.
Equally, domestic students are offered the opportunity to learn a second language, currently Mandarin or Vietnamese. The South Australian State Government has made the study of foreign languages a priority through its plans to open public bilingual schools in 2017.
