IAE’s programs run in 2 sessions of 9 weeks each. Students begin by taking a placement exam the week prior to beginning classes, and all new students begin their studies on Monday. The minimum enrollment period is two (2) weeks, and the maximum enrollment period varies, depending on the level of English skill the student arrives with, the English skill level students want to have when they leave, and the speed at which they progress through the program. Students who successfully achieve IAE’s learning objectives are entitled to receive a “Certificate of Participation” when they leave IAE.
Students are encouraged to start in Week 1 of each session
