Summer Academic English Programs at UT Austin

Want to improve your academic English before you start your degree? We offer four options for international students who have been admitted to UT or another US university for the fall semester.

  • Strengthen your academic English skills and learn about expectations that are emphasized in US higher education and are especially challenging to international students.
  • Classes take place on the UT campus and provide hands-on experience using UT’s library and computer facilities to complete class projects and homework.
