The OPELA is designed to help you identify your language needs so you can understand lectures and readings, communicate easily with your fellow students and graduate as a confident communicator. It is compulsory for:
- first-year undergraduate students enrolling in the subjects, 48230 Engineering Communication or 31265 Communication for IT Professionals; and
- first-year postgraduate students enrolling in the subjects, 42908 Engineering Project Preparation or 32144 Technology Research Preparation.
Once you have completed the OPELA, you will be assigned to an appropriate tutorial group for the relevant subject above. All students undertake the same work but those identified through the OPELA as requiring additional language support will have access to it when required.
