IH Sydney to open centre in Bondi

Australia-based language provider International House Sydney has announced that it will be opening a second centre in Bondi Junction in January.

International House (IH) Bondi will be located in the former Navitas English centre, and will offer the same course portfolio as IH Sydney, which includes General English, exam preparation programmes for Ielts and the Cambridge suite of tests, study tours and Tesol teacher training courses.


Tim Eckenfels, Executive Director of IH Sydney, told StudyTravel Magazine, "Our prices and course offering will be exactly the same, allowing students to move freely between the schools.


"We have chosen Bondi as it gives students a 'beach' location, as opposed to our Sydney city centre location."


Discussing future plans for the school, Tim added, "I am very excited to bring our high-quality courses and exceptional service to the new school in Bondi, and hope to open additional centres around Australia in coming years." 


In a letter to partner agents announcing the expansion, Tim wrote, "You have rewarded us by making us one of the most popular and fastest-growing schools in the industry, and we are grateful and appreciate of your continued support."


Enrolments and marketing for the new Bondi centre will be handled through the main campus in Sydney.


IH Bondi is scheduled to welcome students from January 3, 2017, after Navitas English has vacated the centre in November.


IH Sydney is a member school of English Australia, is quality endorsed by NEAS and is part of the International House World Organisation network of 160 language schools worldwide.
