Other English Programs

In addition to our Intensive English Program, we offer other specialized English programs

Intensive English Summer Scholars Program

The University of Miami, a top tier research institution, and the city of Miami, a modern international hub, together create a unique cultural, environmental and educational platform for language studies. Capitalizing on these strengths, the University of Miami's Intensive English Program (UM-IEP) offers a three-week summer course for international high school students. The curriculum for this program is built around three themes: (week 1) Art & The City; (week 2) Miami Ecosystems, Marine Life & Climate Change; (week 3) The University Experience. The high school students (aged 15-17) will focus on the development of the following skills: listening, reading, writing, speaking, critical thinking, and technology based presentations. By the end of the three week summer program, students will have developed their English, presentation, technological, and critical thinking skills. Further, students will have expanded their knowledge of Miami culture and the culture of U.S. Higher Educational institutions.

International Teaching Assistants

The Intensive English Program tests the spoken English proficiency of all incoming international teaching assistants for the University of Miami before they are assigned a teaching load. Students who do not successfully pass the test are eligible to demonstrate their spoken English through a recorded teaching demonstration before a panel. They are also eligible to take a spoken English course designed to improve English oral communication and presentation skills.

This new three-semester program is designed for students who need to improve their English proficiency before they embark on studying for their International Law LL.M. with a specialization in U.S. and Transnational Law for Foreign Lawyers.
