INTENSIVE ENGLISH PROGRAM (IEP) AT OVU
Looking for a place to study English in the United States? Look no further.
Ohio Valley University’s Intensive English Program guides international students through English learning and certifies them for entry into normal university degree plans in only one year! Students build grammar, reading, speaking, writing, and listening skills that prepare them for studies in a regular university classroom.
In addition to academic English skills, OVU’s international students immerse themselves in the American culture. They live in the residence halls where they interact with, study with, and have fun and adventures with American students all year long.
At Ohio Valley University, we seek to transform lives in a Christ-centered academic community that integrates higher learning, biblical faith, and service to God and humanity.
