English Language Programs

English for University Studies (EUS): Online

English for University (EUS) offers you the opportunity to be enrolled directly to Long Island University without taking an English entrance exam.  

If you have not taken an English entrance exam or you do not meet the English language entry requirement for your LIU degree program, you may enroll in EUS, an 8- or 12-week program that will help you improve your English skills. By successfully completing EUS, you will be guaranteed direct entry to LIU. 

EUS is a 25-hour-per-week program. 50% of your learning hours will be delivered through real-time lessons – with the remaining 50% accessible through pre-recorded lectures and interactive quizzes, group projects, presentations, writing practices, and more.

LIU English Language Institute (ELI): On Campus

If you do not yet have an official English score or do not meet the entry requirements for your LIU degree program, you may also attend LIU’s English Language Institute. LIU’s ELI courses are only available on campus prior to entering your program. Course duration will be dependent on LIU’s assessment of your language level. When you reach the necessary level for your program of choice, you will be able to progress into your degree studies.
