Programs & Training for KU Departments

The Applied English Center is proud to design programs for other Schools and programs across the KU community. We offer courses customized to students’ needs: for example, AEC instructors teach cultural communication and pronunciation to international students in the School of Pharmacy. These courses are designed in collaboration with the program they serve, often with input from KU faculty, and are tailored to the discipline to precisely deliver the skills and strategies to help international students succeed in their chosen field.

Session dates and times are flexible, and are planned to fit in to School, faculty, program or student schedules.
