Welcome to the English Foundations Program

The University Foundations Program is designed to increase non-native English speaker's proficiency in English skills for all university-level coursework at American International University (AIU). The English Foundations Program is an important component of the AIU experience with the goal of improving students’ English proficiency and become accustomed to academic life in an American university setting in Kuwait.

The English Foundations Program's small class settings along with our trained and experienced American instructors make it possible for students to improve both their English skills, by incorporating the latest language methodology, incorporating the most up-to-date audio software, and use of our newly designed computer and listening labs to ensure students learn in a modern environment.
