The Accelerated University English Program (AUEP) is a full-service, pre-academic ESL program.
AUEP addresses the needs of students who plan to pursue undergraduate or graduate degree studies in the United States after completing their ESL studies.
Through AUEP, students take similar courses and have similar preparation as what is seen in the Graduate Conditional Admissions Program (Graduate CAP); however, students in AUEP are not conditionally admitted to a Graduate CAP partner college or university. Instead, after AUEP students complete our program, they go on to study at many fine universities in the USA.
- Assistance in applying for admission to universities.
- Special courses in English for Academic Purposes and/or Pre-MBA
- Supplemental no-limit afternoon private and small group tutoring
- Study skills courses
- Extensive academic advisement, including advising from a faculty mentor
- Progress tracking and benchmarking
- Additional support in adjusting to American culture, including activities with a specially selected university student mentor who has experienced success at the university level
Who enrolls in AUEP?
AUEP is available to anyone who plans to attend a university in the United States and who has not been conditionally accepted to any of the ELI’s conditional admissions partner universities (i.e., AUEP students are not AT/CAP students).
Any student who plans to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree can participate in AUEP. No minimum English level or score is required.
Although sponsored students typically enroll in AUEP (see below), the program is also available to students who are not sponsored (i.e., self-paying students).
A note about sponsored students
Sponsored students at the ELI typically enroll in AUEP.
This full-service program enables students to meet their sponsor’s requirements by helping them to:
- identify and apply for universities,
- improve their academic English skills, and
- develop the academic and cultural skills needed for success at the university level.
