Program Overview

Throughout the World, English is recognized as the principal language of Business. The ability to communicate effectively in English is essential to your success.

If you would like to improve your English language skills in a friendly, multicultural environment, our IEP program is for you. The Program offers international students the opportunity to study English on a university-sponsored residence visa* and to experience life in Dubai for a semester. It is open to students of all ages, and professional and educational backgrounds.

Participants work collaboratively with their instructors and peers to improve their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in English through a number of up-to-date teaching methodologies. You will also study academic skills such as note-taking, presentation delivery, and critical thinking.

The IEP course you take will depend upon your English language skills at the time of entry. You will need to provide a valid IELTS or TOEFL test score prior to registering for IEP, to ensure that you enter the appropriate program. Without a valid test score, you will be assessed by the Program Coordinator.


Learn how to express yourself in an effective manner in order to maximize the communication process and derive benefit from business interactions.


Use your enhanced English skills to approach day to day business activities with imagination and flair.

Best Practices

By communicating effectively in English you will create the right impression from the start and ensure your message is clear and concise.
