The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) is funded by the Australian Government Department of Home Affairs. The program provides free English language lessons to eligible migrants and humanitarian entrants aged 18 years and over. This includes all permanent visa holders, some temporary visa holders and citizens who previously held an eligible visa. Some migrant youth aged between 15 and 17 years of age may also be eligible.
Migrants can now stay in the program longer and the previous 510-hour cap has been removed. People who were previously not eligible may now be eligible.
In an AMEP class, you will learn English language skills to support you with work, further training/study and connecting with the community.
You will meet other migrants with similar backgrounds, experiences and goals, and you may make new friends. All of these will help you settle successfully in Australia.
