Opened in 2010, Cairns College of English and Business is a boutique language school that focuses on high quality teaching and a personalized student experience. In addition to its standard English courses, the school specializes in business and work experience programs. Here you can choose to focus on your professional development with one of the business diplomas or improve your chances of employment in Australia by taking the popular English for Customer Service course.

Housed in a modern building in the heart of the small coastal city of Cairns, the College of English and Business is close to various shops, cafes and tourist activities. As a popular holiday destination, Cairns is a fantastic choice for those wishing to combine their English studies with some work experience. There are plenty of employment opportunities in local hotels, cafes and with tour operators. 

The school has a strict English only policy to ensure its students make the most of their time in Cairns and students are given weekly feedback to keep track of their progress. All teachers are fully certified to teach English as a foreign language and have a special understanding of what it’s like to live abroad and experience cultural differences. Each month, the school provides teacher training to ensure the high caliber of its lessons are maintained by all staff.

Cairns College of English and Business arranges a variety of activities for its students, some of which are free and others are offered at a discounted price through the building's tour operator. These may include trips to the Great Barrier Reef, beach volleyball, cooking, camping in the Outback and much more.
