Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP)

Be taught English for free.

​​​​​​​We provide free English language tuition through the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP). You may be eligible for the AMEP if you are a migrant or humanitarian entrant. Learning English can help you to settle into your new life in Australia.

People attending face to face classes can access free childcare for children under school age.

Classes are flexible and designed to support you to learn, wherever you live. There is a Distance Learning option.

The AMEP has been teaching migrants English for over 75 years and assists around 50,000 to 60,000 eligible migrants and humanitarian entrants each year.

There have been changes to the AMEP. More people can now attend English classes for longer and until they reach a higher skill level.
