Intensive English Program (IEP)


The Intensive English Program (IEP) is a skills-based program designed to improve your abilities in English reading, writing, speaking and listening.

  • Next intake October
  • Seven levels: elementary to advanced
  • Delivered in a full-time, 8-week or 16-week format

Studying in this program will give you the English language skills and the confidence you need to successfully communicate in a variety of contexts, from the workplace to social interactions. By studying in the heart of the UBC Point Grey campus, you’ll make friends with students from all over the world.

You can take one session or stay for longer – our multi-level program ensures that you will have new challenges as you progress through your program.

Our 16-week session allows you to study intensively and see real improvements in your language skills. The mid-term entry points give you the added convenience of choosing the start date that fits your schedule.

NOTE: Starting in January 2018 the Intensive English Program will be replaced by the English Fundamentals Program and the UBC Vancouver English Experience Program.
