Beginning in September, ELS will reduce the number of Intensive Day Program (IDP) courses being offered, and the IDP program will be discontinued as of January 2019. However, all other English language programs and courses at ELS will continue as usual, including full-time English for Academic Purposes (EAP).

Due to the changing needs of our students, IDP is being phased out. To ensure that existing student cohorts complete their studies in the program, the program will be phased out in the following stages:

  • Sep-Oct 2018: ESL 105, 110, and 115 cancelled; ESL 120 and 125 will be offered
  • Nov-Dec 2018: ESL 120 cancelled; ESL 125 will be offered
  • Jan 2019 onwards: IDP closure
