Improve your English at Arizona State University

International students choose to study in the U.S. for many reasons — some want to improve their English proficiency, others seek to enroll in a degree program, and many just want to experience life on an American college campus. We believe the program you choose should have a community that gives you the support you need and the opportunities that will help you achieve your goals. Global Launch at Arizona State University (ASU) offers all that and more.


About Global Launch

Global Launch has provided high-quality intensive English language and academic preparation services for international students since 1974. Global Launch has served more than 100,000 learners across mulitple platforms from every country in the world. All Global Launch educators have at least a master's degree in TESOL, and have lived and taught English all over the world.

English language program: On-campus or Online 

The Global Launch English language program is developed for a wide range of learners at the basic, intermediate and advanced levels. In each course, all students will learn and improve upon the four core competencies of reading, writing, listening and speaking. 

Program details

The Global Launch English language program is developed for a wide range of learners at the basic, intermediate and advanced levels. In each course, all students will learn and improve upon the four core competencies of reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Once you are admitted to Global Launch, you will take a placement test to determine which level you will begin your English studies. There are six levels and it takes eight weeks to complete each level. Short term, 4-week study is available to campus immersion students only.

on campus or online

The world is always changing, and access to a high-quality education in America may not be possible for all learners. At Arizona State University, we believe in the power of using innovative technology to provide and enhance the learning experience for any student located anywhere in the world.

When you apply for Global Launch, you will choose to travel to the U.S. and study in the Campus Immersion or stay in your home country and participate in the Online Immersion English language program.

An alternative to the TOEFL test

Students who successfully complete the Global Launch English language program will not be required to provide a TOEFL or IELTS score for admission to ASU undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Global Launch is also accepted at other U.S. universities.

Conditional admission

ASU offers “conditional admission” to undergraduate degree applicants who have the academic abilities to be successful at ASU, but do not have the English language test scores required for admission to the university. Conditional admission allows you to improve your English in Global Launch’s in-person or online English courses instead of taking the TOEFL or IELTS exam for admission.

Surround yourself in the English language

Learning a new language is difficult, especially when you are away from your home country. When you participate in Global Launch academic success activities and volunteer opportunities, you will learn to use your new English language skills to participate in every-day conversations, help other students and make a difference in your new home here at ASU–there are more than 250 offered each year!

Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent enrollment allows non-degree-seeking students to take Global Launch classes and ASU academic courses at the same time to learn what it takes to succeed in the U.S. educational system.
