*Even if a student meets the English requirements for RGS, they may still be required to take a proficiency exam (IELTS or TOEFL) for Charles Sturt University.

Assessment Test

After Completing the application form for the English Language Program, prospective students will be contacted by an RGS teacher to schedule an assessment test. This assessment is designed to evaluate the student’s current level of English speaking and writing ability, to answer any questions the student may have, and to help guide them to the course that will be best suited to their ability and goals.
