UCEDA Institute

UCEDA INTERNATIONAL courses are offered as Intensive English Programs in order to help students obtain a firm mastery of the language in a time frame that may be condensed according to individual needs.

English has become a vital tool for staying competitive in the modern, globalized world. UCEDA INTERNATIONAL offers a wide array of courses in English as a Second Language to students at all levels, including Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, and our own college-preparation levels that we refer to as Advanced Plus.

The day you arrive at UCEDA you will be given a placement test which will identify your exact level of English proficiency. Following placement testing, you will meet with an Academic Advisor who will help you to create a personalized course schedule based on your level of English, your individual goals and availability. Placement testing is free, so don’t wait any longer – a new life is on the horizon!

Intensive English Programs

UCEDA INTERNATIONAL courses are offered as Intensive English Programs in order to help students obtain a firm mastery of the language in a time frame that may be condensed according to individual needs. Intensive English Programs (IEP) consist of 18 instructional hours per week. Premium and Compressed IEP options are also available, which can include up to 20 hours per week.

For your convenience, each instructional site offers multiple schedules in the mornings and evenings. Most classes meet 5 days per week (MON-FRI), although some locations may also offer 4-day classes. Workshop classes, lasting only one hour each, are also held 3 days per week by an instructor who tailors the material to the individual needs of students in attendance.

FREE TUTORING sessions are also available to all students who wish to participate. Before or after class, feel free to meet with a specialized tutor for help catching up on homework or maybe just to practice conversation. What you practice is up to you!


UCEDA INTERNATIONAL students begin classes on the first Monday of each month. Each course is 12-16 weeks in duration, depending on the level. The entire program duration may range between 3 months for a single course, or up to 12 months or longer for multi-course programs.

It is important to note that the rate of language development may vary according to the learner’s educational background, first language, learning style, cognitive style, and other factors. Therefore, students and financial sponsors should understand that UCEDA INTERNATIONAL does not set strict time limits on the length of English studies.

Classes are held year-round with few exceptions.
