Study English with Manhattan College!
The Manhattan College Intensive English Language Program (IELP) is located in the picturesque Riverdale section of New York City. The IELP offers students the opportunity to reach their academic and personal goals in a holistic language environment. Speaking, Writing, Reading & Vocabulary, and Grammar are all studied by IELP students. IELP instructors are experienced and driven to provide an effective and engaging experience for students, both online and on-campus.
IELP courses run for full semesters during the Fall and the Spring (14 weeks) for approximately 20 hours per week. The Summer IELP is a nine-week course, during which students have nearly 30 hours of classes per week. The IELP has six English language proficiency levels that students can enter, from Level 001 (Beginner) to Level 006 (Advanced). Students who successfully completed Level 006 of the IELP will have met the English language proficiency requirement for admission into Manhattan College undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
The Manhattan College IELP offers Conditional Admission for both undergraduate and graduate applicants. Conditional Admission ensures that those students who successfully complete the IELP then enter Manhattan College can do so without re-applying. This saves time and provides peace of mind for IELP students.
The Manhattan College IELP offers courses both online and on-campus. During the Spring, 2021 semester, the IELP will have online classes only. However, the online IELP offers the same high quality of English language instructions, and all online IELP classes are synchronous (meaning classes are live with teacher and classmates). The IELP hopes to have on-campus classes available for Summer, 2021 and beyond.
Starting in Fall, 2021, Manhattan College will offer the International Pathway Program, in which students can improve their English language skills while concurrently taking for-credit undergraduate courses. The International Pathway Program will be available for applicants who have an intermediate level of English or above (3.0 iTEP / 5.0 IELTS / 60 TOEFL iBT / 85 Duolingo). Please inquire for more information and updates for the International Pathway Program at Manhattan College.
Manhattan College also offers online and on-campus short-term ESL courses during the summer months. The online short-term ESL course offers 15 hours of English language courses per week. The on-campus ESL + New York Experience program offers 15 hours of English language classes per week and an exciting, robust New York City sightseeing experience. Please inquire regarding these Programs for Summer, 2021.
