AUK Restructures Intensive English Program (IEP)

The American University of Kuwait conducted a developmental revision-with the approval of the Private Universities Council (PUC) and the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA)-of its Intensive English Program, which aims to strengthen and advance students' English proficiency to succeed in the university.

The previously 3-level program has been restructured so students will be able to complete the course in 2 semesters. Students will be instructed for approximately 23 hours a week on reading and writing, in addition to oral communication, presentations and special topic courses.

“The notion that we can achieve excellence through the continued capitalization of the latest pedagogical approaches to learning and instructional delivery is what distinguishes us locally as well as regionally. We take pride in the successful integration of best practices as it advances the mission of our institution, and, ultimately and most importantly, promotes and enhances the education and knowledge experience of our students. Our constituents expect nothing less!” said Dr. Rawda H. Awwad, AUK Provost

The mission of the Intensive English Program (IEP) is to prepare students seeking admission to the academic degree programs of AUK by enabling them to gain sufficient mastery of the English language and successfully apply the critical thinking skills they need to excel both during and after their formal studies. The IEP achieves its mission by training non-native English speakers in specific uses of English for academic purposes, by providing quality English language instruction to all who have chosen English as their medium of communication for academic pursuits and by promoting international, intercultural, and self-understanding.
