English Language and Communication Program

Our Mission

Through our courses, workshops, and one-on-one support, we

  • support academic success with a strong foundational English language program and a range of skill-building courses
  • empower students to present themselves and their research with confidence
  • expand professional opportunity through the development of strong scientific writing, oral communication, and presentation skills

As a unit, we are dedicated to serving the student population, 97% of whom are non-native speakers of English.  Students often need our support and additional English language instruction at the start of their academic programs and while writing their theses and dissertations. We are also committed to serving visiting students and those who hope to join KAUST in the future.
