The Long-Term Intensive English component of the Brazil Scientific Mobility Program is for candidates who scored in the 420-549 range on the Institutional TOEFL (ITP), most of whom are third year undergraduates studying in the STEM fields. These candidates will be placed into six-month programs of Intensive English beginning in March 2014. Another group will be approved for twelve-week Short-Term ntensive English programs during summer 2014. Both groups are expected to commence full-time academic programming in fall 2014.
There will be one last group that will be approved for a six-month intensive English program beginning in fall 2014. The students will be expected to commence full-time academic programming in spring 2015.
IIE's goal is to place students in Intensive English Programs (IEPs) at an institution where they will have a strong possibility of transitioning to full-time academic coursework.
