The Intensive English Programme (IEP) is a skills based programme designed to improve language skills in the core areas of grammar (usage), reading, writing, listening and speaking. The programme is carefully designed to meet the unique skillset and goals of academically and non-academically bound learners of English, across all levels of language proficiency, from Foundation to Advanced. The IEP is offered in five semesters per year and the duration for each semester is 8 weeks



In the Foundation to Elementary levels, students concentrate on developing elemental skills in an interactive classroom setting, with instructors providing support necessary to encourage and build self-confidence and independence especially to emerging learners. Coursework highlights those skills necessary for effective oral and written communication. Instruction covers all areas of language development: practical vocabulary, basic language structures, and the requisites of reading, writing, listening and speaking.


In the Pre-Intermediate to Upper-Intermediate levels, students continue to develop fluency and accuracy. Coursework focuses on comprehensive skills as well as academic preparation skills, including the fundamental requisites of essay writing and the development of critical reading, listening and speaking skills. Classes at these levels are aimed to generate greater analytical independence in the core areas.


The Advanced level is for students whose level of proficiency in English is beyond the six-level core programme. Courses at this level focus on advanced reading, writing, listening and speaking, aimed at equipping students with the essentials necessary to succeed in IELTS or the university's English Proficiency Test (EPT).

English Placement Test (EPT) to determine level of entry

Candidates applying to the English programme with IIUM CRESCENT, will be required to sit for an in-house English Placement Test (EPT) and the score achieved will be used to decide the suitable entry level into the programme.


***Classes at any specific level, Foundation through Advanced, will depend on sufficient enrollment. Classes are conducted from Monday to Thursday between 9.00 am to 4.00/5.00 pm.
