Courses are an option for many students who are interested in learning more of about a skill or field of interest. The length and depth of focus depends on the type of course that is selected. This flexibility allows many individuals to take more control over what and how much they learn. Many also appreciate the ability to fit a short course of instruction into a schedule with ease.

What is a course? For those who seek additional learning opportunities, a course is often the easiest and most flexible type of learning available.  Courses vary in intensity and length which allows students to select schedules that will work for their busy lives. From online courses to intensive courses, there are many options available.

There are a number of advantages to taking a course. One of these is the ability for students to continue learning between years of study. Many full-time students forego school in the summer. Whether one is working or relaxing during the summer months, a short course can often help to ensure that skills gained will be retained until the next term begins.

The price of different courses can vary greatly.  This variation is driven by the length of the selected course, the type of educational institution that if offering the course, and the end goal of the course itself. For instance, a course in mathematics that qualifies a student for an academic credit might be more expensive than a brief refresher course on basic math techniques.

Courses are offered many institutions worldwide, and in many different fields.  As such, many career options will be greatly enhanced when individuals opt to invest their time in a course. Some of the top courses that are available today include those in design, education, engineering and psychology. Whether one is just beginning to learn about field of study, or looking to enhance a current degree, many jobs are available for those who have chosen to complete this type of course.

Do not delay your enhanced learning opportunities any longer. If you are interested in learning more about the types of courses that are available, you need only search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Program Overview

The University Center (www.universityprep.com) is an intensive, comprehensive ESL and university preparatory boarding school. We help international students prepare for English language and academic success at great American universities.

The Value of University Prep for International Students

Why should international students spend 4 or 8 months in a university preparatory program at The University Center? Our university prep program increases academic and cultural competency, saves time and money, enhances admissions qualifications, and prepares students to get more out of their US university experience.

According to the latest statistics from IPEDS (to which all American universities must report), over 50% of international students studying in the USA take longer than necessary to complete their bachelor’s degrees. (Many "pathway” students are probably taking longer, based on preliminary evidence, but universities are not required to report these graduation rates.)... [-]

What Legal English is; What Legal English isn’t.

Legal English is an After-School Course designed to introduce students to the American judicial and legislative systems. Its focus is the vocabulary and terminology of the U. S. legal system. Students will discuss various branches of law, study landmark cases and visit a local courthouse to view legal proceedings. Legal English is not a law course and therefore, students can expect their instructor to focus on legal language and know U. S. law in general terms, rather than in detail.

Who teaches Legal English?

Legal English is taught by an experienced English language instructor. Although this course is taught by someone who may not have a legal background, it will be taught by a skilled NESE teacher who is able to give you an understanding of legal language.... [-]
