I am happy that you are interested in attending The University of Alabama (UA) English Language Institute (ELI). In terms of quality, value, and total educational experience, we offer one of the best intensive English programs in the United States!

UA provides students from around the world with a friendly, comfortable, and stimulating environment in which to study and experience life in the US.

If you want or need to improve your English language skills, the UA English Language Institute is a great place for you to be. You will take intensive English classes at the appropriate level together with other students from different countries around the world.

You can choose how long you want to study — from 1 month to 12 months. You can also choose when to begin your study from the 6 different starting dates for our program each year. When you arrive in Alabama on a designated arrival day, we will meet you at the airport and help you to get settled on our beautiful campus.

Whatever your reason for studying English — academic, professional, or other — our goal is to help you to meet your goals successfully. I invite you to join us at the English Language Institute!

See you soon in Alabama!
