For students whose first language is not English, Pures offers full-time English programs to you improve your language skills to meet the academic requirements of your program. The students will take the comprehensive assessment upon arrival, in order to determine the ESL level. Our ESL program includes three levels.

We strongly recommend all the international students shall take the English assessment test and let us know your actual English skill’s level.

Meanwhile, we provide part-time ESL programs to improve your English in the evening or on the weekend. Students, who find difficulties during study diploma programs, will have the option to take part-time ESL program or English tutorial sections.

You can discuss your specific language needs with the Academic Advisor.
