Program Benefits

Why study English at NDSU?

  • Immersive environment: IELP students will live, study and socialize among other NDSU students. Surrounded by English and friendly students and faculty, your language skills will quickly improve!
  • Conditional Admission: IELP students can apply for admission to NDSU and easily transition into academic coursework upon completion of language study. Those who qualify for conditional admission must have a higher language proficiency upon arrival to campus. See for the conditional admission requirements and application procedures. Students who do not qualify for conditional admission may take courses in our intensive program and apply for admission once they have achieved the required benchmarks.
  • Faculty expertise: IELP faculty have master’s degrees in TESL or closely-related fields of study. Their experience teaching and learning languages equips them to design courses that help you learn quickly and efficiently.
