Full-time Intensive English Program
Are you interested in full-time English study, or do you know someone who may be? Our full-time Intensive English Program is a multi-leveled English training program designed to help students rapidly improve their English skills for use in academic or professional goals. 

Although students can take courses part-time in the program, full-time students benefit from a faster rate of improvement and the perks of extracurricular learning opportunities, as well as UAB student status. Students who want to arrive from abroad can receive an I-20 from UAB for the application of an F-1 student visa.
