Intensive English Program

Intensive English Program

The University of Dayton is a diverse community committed, in the Marianist tradition, to educating the whole person, and linking learning and scholarship with leadership and service.

The University of Dayton Intensive English Program offers students the opportunity to develop the skills needed to take full advantage of the high quality education the University has to offer – all within a personalized environment. Whatever your background or goals, the University of Dayton will provide you with the highest quality English language and cultural immersion program.

The Intensive English Program is a gateway to undergraduate or graduate admission or can be used for language and culture immersion. Most students complete language training in as little as one academic year.

Our teachers in the Intensive English Program are highly qualified professional instructors. They hold either a Master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or a related field or a Master’s degree with a TEFL/TESL certificate. They all have experience working, studying and/or living abroad.

Our Mission

The Intensive English Program welcomes a diverse community of international learners to prepare them for success in their academic careers by providing English language instruction rooted in best practices. IEP’s diverse team of TESOL professionals guides students toward autonomy as they learn, explore, and practice the habits necessary for success in U.S. higher education. Together with University academic departments, IEP creates and facilitates opportunities for intercultural exchange.
