About Us / Brief Info
Mission Statement: ESLI's Mission is to improve the English language skills of international students and prepare them for academic success in North American universities.
ESLI is the original Pathway Program into the universities' degree programs. No TOEFL or IELTS is required. Upon completing our program, ESLI universities guarantee placement to academically qualified students.
Students do not need to submit GMAT or GRE exam scores at the time of application for acceptance into the graduate programs. Instead, ESLI affiliated universities allow students to take the exams at the end of the Pre-University level of the ESLI program.
Substantial scholarships are available to academically qualified students once they enter the degree programs. These are available every spring and fall term, and, in some cases, in the Summer term.
ESLI students have full access to campus facilities, services, and activities. Each school offers ESLI students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the university culture, students are encouraged to participate in social activities and attend sporting events.
ESLI Language Centers
These Centers are integrated into the academic, social, and cultural life of each host university to give our students a fully enriched study abroad experience.
Located on the campus of the ESLI host schools, ESLI provides each student with the opportunity to interact with North American students in the dorms, social clubs, athletic events, school dining halls, onthe tennis courts and soccer fields, etc.
