Adult Migrant English Program

The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) is a free service to help eligible migrants and humanitarian entrants with low English levels to improve their English language skills and settle into Australia.

  • Learning English will help you to participate more fully in Australian life. You will learn new skills to help you work and make friends in Australia.
  • When you are in an AMEP class, free childcare is available for children under school age.
  • For migrants receiving Centrelink payments, learning English in the AMEP may meet some or all of your mutual obligation requirements.​

Am I eligible?

The AMEP is available to eligible migrants and humanitarian entrants who hold a permanent visa or an eligible temporary visa​ ​​and to Australian citizens who previously held a permanent visa. The principal visa holder and their dependants may be eligible for AMEP.
