• 1.When do classes meet? Is there class on the weekend?+

    Classes start at the earliest at 8:10am and finish at the latest at 4pm (possibly 5pm). There is no class on the weekend.
  • 2.May students pick their classes themselves? (e.g. concentrating in legal studies or business) Is it true that after reaching a certain level, students may pick their own classes?+

    First semester class schedules are determined based on placement test results. Starting from the second semester, students may select a portion of their classes based on discussions with their advisor and the teachers in the academic affairs office. Core classes may not be chosen by the student.
  • 3.Can I take only individual classes during the first semester? Am I required to take one individual class and three group classes? At what level are students allowed to decide how many classes they enroll in?+

    New students of all levels must take one individual class and three group classes. Only students in their second year onward have the option of choosing a variant course schedule. The class schedule for new students is determined based on the results of the placement test taken by each student upon enrolling at the ICLP.

    If ICLP is unable to find a class that suits a student's exact level or learning pace, our Instructional Office will modify the student's class module to two one-on-one classes a day so as to facilitate their learning. The tuition is the same for both modules because one-on-one classes provide tailored instruction and focused attention on the student's individual learning needs. 
  • 4.Is auditing allowed?+

    Because these are language classes prioritizing small class sizes, auditing is not permitted.
  • 5.I would like to work while taking classes at the ICLP, would it be permissible for me to only have two hours of class per day?+

    Our curriculum is intensive and the workload is quite heavy, requiring four hours of class per day and at least 4-6 hours of out of class preparation time, leaving no time to partake in a full or part time job on the side.  
  • 6.Do returning students need to re-take the placement test?+

    Returning students who have been away for over half a year must reapply and retake the placement test because their language level may have changed.
  • 7.What rules must ICLP students follow? Has the ICLP expelled students for disobeying the rules in the past?+

    Students must come to class on time and thoroughly prepare for their classes, and respect their classmates, teachers, and the ICLP staff. According to the ICLP regulations, the school maintains the right to expel a student who has disobeyed the rules, and/or reject their application for admission the following semester.
