Intermediate English for Post-Secondary Education

Intermediate English for Post-Secondary Education is an intensive academic preparation program for those who wish to enter a post-secondary institution (college or university) or for those who wish to study academic English. IEPE has proven to be a valuable stepping stone not only for students who wish to pursue KGIC's official Pathway program, English for Post-Secondary Education, but also for future IELTS students who are exploring alternative courses as well.
