Intensive English Language Program Admissions

Intensive English Language Program - Admissions

For those students whose level of English does not yet qualify them for entry to the University, John Cabot University's English Language for University Studies (ENLUS) Program offers intensive classes in academic English. The goals of the program include raising students’ English proficiency to university level, preparing students for the intellectual demands of university study, and providing a complete English language learning experience, both in and out of class. 

How to Apply
Our admissions office seeks to admit students who aspire to earn a degree at JCU or another English-speaking university, or wish to achieve a higher level of English proficiency for business or personal reasons.

Association with an American university
ENLUS’s association with an accredited American university provides ENLUS students with many advantages. In addition to receiving individualized attention in small classes with instruction by highly-qualified professors, ENLUS students are integrated into the cultural and social life of JCU’s English-speaking student body, and are granted access to all JCU facilities, including the library and computer labs. Successful ENLUS graduates are normally granted direct acceptance into one of JCU’s degree programs and receive an additional scholarship toward their first semester.

Program Structure
The 15-week course follows JCU’s academic calendar and is divided into three proficiency levels:

  • ENLUS II (B2) meets 4 ½ hours daily, Monday through Thursday, for a total of 252 hours. Students who are enrolled in ENLUS II are eligible to enroll in one academic (for credit) course in mathematics, computer science, fine arts, or Italian if they satisfy the University’s minimum admission requirements. Students interested in enrolling in a University course should contact the Admissions Office at [email protected] to determine if they are eligible.
  • ENLUS I (B1) meets 4 hours daily, Monday through Thursday, for a total of 208 hours. Small class size ensures that each student receives individual attention and has the opportunity to participate actively in class. Attention is also given to introducing foreign students to American culture and university life.
  • PRE-ENLUS (A2) meets 4 hours daily, Monday through Thursday, for a total of 208 hours. Small class size ensures that each student receives individual attention and has the opportunity to participate actively in class. Attention is also given to introducing foreign students to American culture and university life.
