SAUDI ARABIA

Before I came to the UC San Diego English 

Language Institute, I was very weak in 

writing and grammar. However, I can 

confidently say that my writing has improved 

dramatically and I received a high score on 

the TOEFL. My teachers were very creative 

and knowledgeable. It may sound strange, 

but I always looked forward to my grammar 

class because of the fun activities we did.  

I recommend the ELI to students who are 

serious about their education and want to 

take their English skills to the next level. 

 

Mission Statement of the English Language Institute



It is our mission to provide English language instruction of the highest 

quality, in which people can learn to their full potential, develop a deeper 

understanding of the United States, and always receive courteous and 

knowledgeable service.

SPECIAL NOTE: Students who enroll in the Intensive TOEFL Preparation and Intensive Business English programs must arrive for the first day of the published program start-date. Due 

to planning requirements, we cannot accept late arrivals for these programs. Students who do not arrive for the first day of the published program start-date will lose their space and 

will automatically be transferred into our Intensive Academic English Program for the quarter.

BRAZIL


The Intensive Legal English program was 

extremely important for my career. It 

prepared me to apply for law school and 

pursue a master degree in Comparative 

Law. It really helped me improve my English 

skills and also provided me with a necessary 

overview of the most important topics of 

American Law. I am currently attending the 

University of San Diego (USD) School of Law 

and working on my LLM in Comparative 

Law. After graduation, I plan to sit for 

the California Bar, so I will be licensed to 

practice law here.

Feiyu (Felix) Yan  

P.R. CHINA

I applied to the University Preparation 

Academy with the goal to get accepted  

and complete a Master’s of Finance at UC 

San Diego’s Rady School of Management. 

My instructors helped me create the best 

possible Statement of Purpose and CV, 

which definitely helped when I applied to 

Rady. They also offered me good advice on 

making appointments with professors. I am  

happy to report that I was accepted to  

the Rady School of Management. I was  

very lucky to have excellent instructors in the 

University Preparation Academy who always 

supported me. Every time I return to the 

English Language Institute, I feel at home. 

It’s like my home overseas.

members of the local community in our Conversation classes?  

Conversation Leaders actively participate in several hours of class during the 4-week Conversation 

program, 4-week Conversation and Fluency program, and elective Conversation classes in many of 

our 10-week programs. Our ELI students can also practice speaking English with Conversation Leaders 

during Conversation Cafés, which are held frequently.

ADVISORY ABOUT VARIABLE 

ENROLLMENTS

Enrollment numbers in our Academic, Conversation, and 

Conversation and Fluency programs vary greatly from 

month to month. If our placement tests indicate that 

a student’s English proficiency level does not permit 

placement in the original 4-week program class, we may 

place the student in 4 weeks of study in a corresponding 

10-week program, or we may provide a combination of 

classes to ensure a full-time program of 20 hours per 

week for 4 weeks. Alternatively, we may decide to place 

all 4-week program students in level-appropriate classes 

in a corresponding 10-week program of 20 hours per 

week for 4 weeks. When this happens, the students’ 

4-week program will have the features described for the 

new 10-week program, not the features described for 

the original program. The hours, tuition, and fees for the 

students’ 4-week program will remain the same.  

*ADVISORY ABOUT LEVEL 

REQUIREMENTS 

Only students who test into high-intermediate and 

advanced levels on UCSD-ELI placement exams will be 

accepted into the Academic English, Business English, 

and Medical English programs.  This level requirement 

corresponds to a minimum score of approximately 60 on 

the TOEFL iBT, 5.0 on the IELTS, or 160 on the Cambridge 

Exam: First (FCE).  Students who do not qualify will be 

transferred to the Conversation and Fluency program.  In 

April, May, June, and November, when the Conversation 

and Fluency program is not offered, students testing lower 

than high-intermediate will receive a combination of 

classes to ensure a full-time program of 20 hours per week 

for four weeks.
