The Intensive English Program at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee is a pre-academic English proficiency program that uses the Focal Skills approach to prepare students for university study in English.
- The program also accepts students who wish to improve their English proficiency for professional purposes.
- The program is open to any student who has completed high school, and is 18 years old or older.
The program of study consists of four progressively difficult courses: Listening (Level 1), Reading (Level 2), Writing (Level 3) and Immersion (Level 4). Each course has three classes and one elective.
- Students concentrate on one skill at a time and use developed skills to acquire a new skill. At the advanced level, Immersion, students work on integrating all language skills in preparation for academic study.
- Students take placement tests in Listening, Reading and Writing at the beginning of the program.
- Students move to the next level of study as soon as monthly test scores and class work indicate that they are ready.
- Full-time study is 20 hours per week. Each semester is four months; the summer session is two months.
Students who complete one full semester (four months) of the Immersion with a grade of B minus (80%) or better, meet the UWM English proficiency requirement for admission to full-time undergraduate study. No TOEFL or IELTS score is required.
