Jan and Garth Keppie are the sole Directors and Co-Principals of the Australian International College of Language (AICOL) (ABN 83 059 849 062) a Gold Coast English School which was established in 1993. Our good reputation for quality without compromise stands us apart from most of our competitors and has led us to become the  English Language school of first choice for many agents and individual students wishing to study English on the Gold Coast. Students and agents who pay their student visa  tuition fees and homestay monies to AICOL can rest assured they are safe as we operate trust accounts for these monies. We are financially stable – we own our premises which are unencumbered and we also own and operate our own farmstay for international study tour groups, particularly school groups.
