The Intensive English Institute prides itself in the courses and programs offered to meet a variety of academic backgrounds and needs.
Core Intensive English Program
The UMaine Intensive English Institute’s primary focus is to help students succeed in their academic studies while teaching them how to speak, read, and write in English with confidence and proficiency.
Maine Bridge Program
The Maine Bridge Program provides an opportunity for students that have received academic admission (conditional admission) to a UMaine undergraduate degree program, but whose English language scores are below 550 (TOEFL ITP), 79 (TOEFL IBT), or 6.5 (IELTS) necessary for full-time enrollment.
IEI Travel Writing Course
The UMaine IEI Travel Writing Course is designed to give International Students an experience in Maine that they will never forget plus the opportunity to develop their travel writing skills to a publishable level. The course is built around six field trips to popular attractions in Maine from the outlet stores of Freeport to the historic lighthouses of the Maine coast.
Custom Short Programs
The IEI offers the ability to create a custom short program to suit the needs and budget of your school, business, or organization featuring custom curriculums, flexible schedules, customizable cultural activities, and potential partnerships with other departments at the University of Maine.
The IEI offers Short-Term Programs for both students and teachers in the United States and abroad. We also offer an IEI TESOL Certification and IEI TESOL Plus Course for those who are ready to begin their ESL career.
