Supporting the University's English Language Learners

English Language Programs predominantly serves non-native speakers of English, and offers language services to all students, staff and faculty at Brandeis as well.

We offer individual tutorial sessions in written and oral skills to both undergraduate and graduate students in the arts and sciences; intensive English classes to Graduate School of Arts and Sciences students; on-site office hours to Heller School of Social Policy and Management students; and workshops, tutorials and consultations to Brandeis International Business School students. We also offer tutorials to postdocs, visiting scholars, staff and faculty. These services are designed to develop oral-communication, analytical-writing and critical-thinking skills.

Additionally, ELP manages the Gateway Scholars Program, which prepares students for the rigorous Brandeis academic curriculum as well as life at a liberal arts university.

Please Note: In response to COVID-19, ELP has made our spring '20 services available online, including courses, workshops and all one-on-one tutorial sessions.
