SELC: since 1985


Over the last thirty years, SELC has developed its own unique educational experience, which separates us from larger, less personal schools in Australia and internationally. With the range and quality of the facilities SELC has to offer, students immediately gain a sense of the more personal and nurturing learning environment which is an integral part of SELC’s culture.

SELC was founded in 1985 in Sydney, making it one of the longest-established schools in Australia. SELC Canada opened its doors in Vancouver in 2012 and since then SELC Vancouver has developed its own unique culture and atmosphere. SELC also has Career Colleges in both Sydney and Vancouver. As the world faces a global skills shortage, SELC seeks to meet the demand for quality vocational education and training closely linked to industry.

Our innovative language and vocational programs are designed to ensure that SELC graduates have a distinctive experience to be able to have both fulfilling careers and lives.


English Only Policy- Learn to think in English

When students arrive at SELC for their first day orientation we begin their introduction to Australian lifestyle and culture by providing encouragement to begin ‘thinking in English’ both in and outside the classroom, ‘immersing’ themselves in the language.

Inside SELC our English Only policy is positively reinforced and students are rewarded for interacting in English with our friendly teachers and staff as well as students from other nationalities but most importantly with students from their own nationality at all times.
