Intensive English Programme (IEP)

Course Description

  • Intensive English Programme (IEP) is a language proficiency course designed for International students who have not met the language requirement set by UNITEN. International students (undergraduate and postgraduate) who have the following TOEFL or IELTS scores are exempted from the IEP:
    • TOEFL of 530 (PBT) or 73 (iBT)
    • IELTS of 5.0
  • Intake for the IEP is done THREE times a year, in January, May and September. Students who wish to enroll in the IEP are required to take the TEP Test of English Proficiency before they enroll in the IEP. The test results will be used to gauge the students level of proficiency and class placement. Students who miss the TEP for any form of reason will automatically be placed in Module B.
  • In class, students are given the necessary language skills reading, writing, speaking, and listening input to enable them to reach an acceptable, functional level required for academic success at UNITEN. Grammar skills are incorporated in every component. Students will also be given time in the language lab for Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) and Internet based activities.
  • The classes run 23 hours per week. Classes would normally run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Classes are small with a maximum capacity of 25-30 students per class. The language classes are taught by experienced language instructors/lecturers. The IEP classes are situated on Level 2 in the College of Foundation and General Studies (CFGS) building with easy access to the library, caf, ATM and bus stop.
