Background

The ELC is an independent teaching unit within Taibah University. It currently resides within the Deanery of Academic Services of the university.

It was recognized by the university that many students entering the university did not have the prerequisite skills for succeeding at the level required. Primarily those skills were language skills, but it was also recognized that academic, personal organization and development skills were also lacking. The university thus decided to provide a mandatory Preparatory Year Program.

The English Language Center currently runs three key programs:

•   Preparatory Year English Language (PYEL)
•   Graduate English Program (GEP)
•   Lecturer and Teaching Assistants Program (LTAP)
