Study Online

Would you like to learn English anywhere in the world?


Online English classes are delivered by Southern Lakes English College (SLEC), fully owned by the Southern Institute of Technology (SIT).

Students are required to attain a specific level of English proficiency before commencing their online classes. They will be evaluated by our teachers.

We offer two online options:

  • Intermediate level for those who aim to achieve an IELTS score of 5.5

  • Upper-Intermediate level for those who aim to achieve an IELTS score of 6.5. This will allow students to continue their studies beyond English at SIT or any other institute or country.


Students have the option to take exams in their home country. If they attain the necessary score and choose to enrol at SIT, $400 NZD will be deducted from the total SIT main course fees in order to cover the exam cost.

Online courses are offered for a minimum duration of 3 months starting every Monday, at a rate of $125 for 8 hours per week.
