Intensive English Language Program

Since 1982, Brock has provided thousands of students from around the world with exceptional English language education and cultural experiences. The Intensive English Language Program (IELP) will prepare you for your future academic studies at Brock.

The Intensive English Language Program strengthens your reading, writing, listening, speaking, and grammar. Students will improve their ability to read academic materials, write essays, take notes, and give presentations.

Completion of this program’s highest level (Level 5), satisfies the English language requirement for Brock’s undergraduate and graduate programs that require English Proficiency Test Scores of IELTS (6.5) or TOEFL (88) or equivalent.
