A unique English language and culture program at the Monterey Institute for a group of undergraduate students from the University of Shimane in Japan was featured in the Sunday edition of the Monterey Herald.
A number of Monterey Institute students stayed in town this summer to participate in the renowned MIIS Summer Intensive Language Program, with some adding a third or fourth language to their resumes.
Our language programs have different application procedures and requirements. Please consult specific programs for more details.
Intensive English Programs (ESL)
You can pursue full-time English language studies in our Intensive English Program. We do not require Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores for admission.
Most international students need F-1 immigration status to attend our programs. After we process your application, you will receive an I-20 document that allows you to apply for a student visa at the local US embassy or consulate.
We carefully examine both past academic performance and professional experience in assessing candidates for our programs. Each year we strive to enroll candidates with strong intellectual and professional backgrounds who will add to the diverse and international community on our campus.
To start the application process, please be sure to take the following steps:
We're happy to answer questions about the application process or speak to you via phone or email. Please contact email@example.com or call 831.647.4123. You can also speak one-on-one with our staff members below!
