Intensive English Course
The Intensive English Course for International Students is a course designed for international students to develop their confidence and competence in using English in the social and academic environments. This course is especially tailored to fulfil the needs of students who have not demonstrated an acceptable level of English proficiency upon entrance into the University. This includes:
- those who have failed the English Language Placement Test (ELPT);
- those who have failed the ELPT but later produce their acceptable IELTS/TOEFL score that has been obtained after the date of ELPT; and
- those who have failed to sit for the ELPT at the specified date.
This course aims to develop the specific language skills in the social and academic settings, targeting the listening, reading, writing, and speaking competencies. It will highlight the importance of social and communication skills in and outside the classroom. Hence, students also will be involved in extracurricular activities such as:
- educational trip,
- language and culture day,
- sports day,
- family day and etc.
Apart from learning the language structures and vocabulary, students will have the opportunities to refine their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. Students will also be able to apply the skills appropriate for working individually and in groups.
Students are allowed to take the Intensive English Course for up to two (2) semesters only. They will be terminated from the university if they fail the course for two consecutive semesters.
Payment for the Intensive English Course is RM2880.
