English School in California is an Ideal Introduction to University in the USA

One of the great things about the American higher education system is how easy it is to transfer between colleges and universities. It is common for students to complete their general education requirements at a small community college before moving to a larger university to finish the last two years of their bachelor’s degree. This is called a “2+2” program—the first two years of undergraduate study are at a community college and the second two at a bigger university.

ESI’s friendly counsellors help you transfer to your chosen university

Intensive English language programs like ESI’s are a valuable part of the education system, working with the individual needs and abilities of each student to ensure that they can confidently progress to the university of their choice and the career of their dreams. You will learn study skills that you’ll need in university, take classes that prepare you for the TOEFL and IELTS English language tests, and even attend special workshops to develop your “Statement of Purpose” (or Application Essay) for university admissions applications.

Study English in California for Conditional Admission to Great Universities

Although many talented students have the test scores and other qualifications to study at the university of their choice, they may not have the English language requirements they need. Fortunately, many universities now offer “conditional admission” to international students who meet other admission requirements but need to take English courses to improve their communication skills. Since we have conditional acceptance agreements with 12 top higher education institutions across the country, this pathway is made even easier for ESI students.
