The Intensive English Programme (IEP) is strictly a preparatory course designed to help foreign and local students acquire a satisfactory English proficiency level before they gain admission into the academic programmes.
Students (usually international students from non-English speaking countries) initially apply for other courses, and if they do not have the relevant language qualifications, they are refered to the Department of Languages. Students who do not wish to progress to other programmes but are interested in improving their language proficiency may also apply. Upon completion, they will receive a certificate of attendance .
Potential students should
have a basic knowledge of English Grammar,
be aware of the four language skills, and
sit for the Intensive English Programme Placement Test (IEPPT).
Upon completion of the IEPPT, students are placed in the IEP classes according to their scores:
IEP (Basic - Levels 1 & 2): 0 – 22 marks
IEP (Elementary - Levels 3 & 4): 23 – 54 marks
IEP (Intermediate - Levels 5 & 6): 55 – 69 marks
