Intensive English Program

In the CELE program, students take intensive English courses to strengthen their English speaking, listening, reading, writing, and pronunciation skills. The CELE program gives students confidence in their English skills, whether they desire to use them for business, travel, conversation, or to become a traditional undergraduate or graduate student. Students who pass CELE exit exams have conditional admission into NU with NO TOEFL required.

Short Term Programs

Students can visit for 2–5 weeks to gain cultural and practical experience. Short term program topics are customizable to your group. Short term programs could focus on education, nursing, business, music, and more. Each program includes English lessons, Active learning, Lectures, Auditing NU classes, and Field Trips all focused around the selected topic. Students also visit businesses and landmarks in the Seattle area including Microsoft, Boeing, Google, the Space Needle, and the first Starbucks.
