Program Information

The Intensive English Program began in 1951, and has flourished ever since. We are proud to be celebrating our 65th anniversary this year. The IEP sees students from all over the world, including China, Kuwait, Italy, Venezuela, etc.

The Intensive English program prepares international students for success in the American university system. They will learn skills in reading, writing, presentations, and oral communications.

The program offers 5 levels of instruction. Each level lasts one session. There are six session start dates throughout the year. The full sessions begin in August, January, and May, and last 12 weeks. The mid sessions begin in October, February, and June, and last 6 weeks. Only first-time students may start with a mid session. Returning students must complete full sessions.

There will be an exam week at the end of the semester, before the Certificate Ceremony. Orientation for each semester will begin the week before the first day of classes. Placement exams will be given during orientation to determine the starting level of each student. The completion of level 5 at the IEP satisfies the undergraduate English requirement for the University of Miami.
