Additional Programs & Services

The English Language Institute offers a variety of programs and services designed to support students and the University community.

ELI supports UB's undergraduate and graduate students, both international and domestic. If English is not your first language, we offer courses to help with the academic language you need and to help you complete your UB curriculum requirements.
The SPEAK Test (Speaking Proficiency English Assessment Kit) is required for some students.
The Evening Program of the English Language Institute offers a variety of part-time courses suited to the specific needs and schedules of working professionals, graduate students, and others interested in non-credit English language study.
At ELI, you’ll have many opportunities to practice your English outside of class, so you can learn even faster.
We work with departments to provide language upgrade and preacademic training as part of the University’s overseas programs.
