Browns English Language School (02663M) transfer of students with an active Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) to Griffith University (00233E) (Griffith English Language Institute - GELI)

TPS is aware that BROWNS English Language School made the decision on 9th of July 2021 to transfer students with an active CoE to Griffith University's official English language provider, Griffith English Language Institute (GELI).

For these students only, language course delivery will be provided by GELI. Griffith University - GELI is matching tuition fees and honouring all moneys paid to BROWNS English Language School for these students.

Given the current uncertainty with the international border being closed, BROWNS English Language School felt it was best to act sooner rather than later and provide students with the option of a sustainable Government provider that will provide the infrastructure and accessibility to meet each student's immediate learning needs.

GELI has contacted all transfer students and education agents, and in the first instance students/agents should liaise with the GELI team directly at geli-bels@griffith.edu.au or by telephone Monday - Friday 8am - 4pm AEST on +61 7 5552 7555.

Students are welcome to contact the Tuition Protection Service at any time if they have further questions regarding their course transfer. The best contact for the TPS is: operations@tps.gov.au.

Students who do not have an active CoE are encouraged to contact BROWNS English Language School directly if they have any questions regarding their enrolment: apply@browns.edu.au.
