The Tufts Touch
Tufts University’s English Language Programs guarantee to have students practicing their English skills in real-world settings from day one. Experiential learning is emphasised across all of Tufts, a premier research institution consistently ranked among the top 30 universities in the United States.
A Hands-On Approach to Learning English
Tufts’ ESL programs prepare students for life at American universities, succeeding in real-world situations, writing academic research papers, taking the TOEFL exam, and much more. Intensive summer programs focus on project-based and experiential learning, and programs are fully immersive. Students may live on campus where they have access to all university facilities.
ESL Program Director Kevin Paquette described the student experience: “We try to create a fantastic, immersive experience through academic workshops and social events. We want students to leave here knowing a little bit more about themselves and about the culture that is represented.
Experience One of the Nation’s Top Universities
In addition to Tufts University’s premier location just outside of Boston, Tufts offers students the chance to experience a world-class research university where professors and students are driven by intellectual curiosity.
Tufts Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions Denny Paredes commented, “We value individuals’ perspectives and backgrounds and want them to push themselves out of their comfort zones and be explorers. We want people to implement those ideas that may not necessarily come from traditional ways of thinking, but to push forward innovate ways of doing things.”
Known for robust programs in science, technology, engineering, and math, Tufts draws undergraduate and graduate students to programs ranging from Biomedical Engineering to Economics to International Relations. The university offers something for everyone, and students value the opportunities to dive into important research projects.
Director of Graduate Admissions Karen Richardson commented, “Tufts is a very personal place. At the undergraduate level, we talk a lot about having the feeling of a small liberal arts college, but at the same time we are a major research university. Students get the one-on-one time they want with professors, but they still have the opportunity to be part of labs and important research. You are not just a number; you are definitely part of a community.”
