  The Intensive English Language Program
The Intensive English Language Program at the University of New Orleans offers one of the most effective and diverse language programs in the United States. The IELP is designed especially for non-native English speakers who plan to study at an American university or who wish to improve their English for personal or professional reasons.  We take great care to help our students adapt to life in the United States, and we love to introduce them to the local Louisiana culture. 

We currently have 89 students from 26 different countries improving their English in the IELP. Since 1995, more than 1900 students from over 120 different countries have improved their English skills in the IELP. More than 600 of those students have gone on to study and UNO and earn degrees at the University of New Orleans. 

We also design special courses to meet specific needs.  If you would like to learn more about what the IELP can do for you, please email or call 504-280-5530.

I was lucky to be an IELP student in 2003. I met some wonderful people, everybody was very helpful. I graduated with MBA from UNO in 2006. I think this program is the best, and all of the teachers and administration staff made my IELP experience great and unforgettable! Thank you, and I miss you all!
