The IELE offers four core English language courses (English I, English II, English III, and English IV), and two non-credit courses (Basic English I and Basic English II). Apart from the above courses, we provide an induction programme (Intensive English Programme, IEP) for all incoming students.

Through interactive classroom activities and participation in various cultural and religious events, the IELE still aims to preserve and promote diverse art and cultures.
